Interstate Custody & Relocations

The State of Florida has adopted the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) which details how states should handle jurisdictional issues regarding the enforcement of child custody orders. The UCCJEA was passed in order to help prevent parental kidnapping or violations of custody orders in which parents go to another state in order to avoid enforcement. Nonetheless, despite this uniform code interstate custody issues can be incredibly convoluted, and you will need the assistance of a skilled family law attorney who understands the intricacies of how custody laws work between states. Even in situations where one parent wants to make a legal and reasonable relocation which would impact a previously established custody or visitation arrangement, you will need a skilled attorney to help you effectively work out the legal detail and arrangements. Call Rotella & Hernandez for assistance with any interstate custody legal matters.
