Understanding Interstate Custody Law
Every state in the U.S. has adopted uniform laws that tell us which state should decide a child custody or child support case. These laws -- the “UCCJEA” for custody cases and the “UIFSA” for child support -- help prevent a court in one state from second-guessing a decision already made by another state. These laws also help discourage parents from taking the children to a state they view as more favorable. Whether Texas has the power to make a child custody decision will depend on specific facts, such as how long the child has been in Texas.
If you are involved in an interstate custody case, you need a lawyer who understands these applicable laws. Our team of family lawyers has handled a wide range of move-away and multi-state cases in central Texas and can help you navigate this area of the law.
