Interstate Custody Disputes

Interstate Custody Disputes

`If you are involved in a interstate custody case you will become acquainted with the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, or UCCJEA. The UCCJEA will require your custody suit to be heard in the home state of the child, that is, where the child has resided in the past six months. The court’s will use a significant connection test in deciding what state should hear the custody dispute when the child has lived in two states during the six month period. Texas, under normal circumstances, will adopt a first to file rule, and the party that files their lawsuit first decide’s which state will hear the custody dispute. Bring proof which corroborates where the child has lived for the past six months and take it into your lawyer’s office. Matt Sossi
