Professional Guidance In Interstate Custody Arrangements

Agreeing on child custody is already one of the most emotionally charged aspects of divorce. It can become even more complicated if parents live in different states. At Keith B. Schulefand, Esq., we have over 30 years of family law experience. We believe that custody is about determining what is in the best interest of the children involved, not about winning or losing. Our attorneys are committed to negotiating fair resolutions and guiding you through the process of an interstate custody arrangement as efficiently as possible.

Questions About Interstate Child Custody

The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) establishes standards for courts all around the country to handle interstate custody. This is meant to create common guidelines across states to facilitate these cases. Those standards unfortunately do not prevent complications in interstate custody cases.

You may have a lot of questions about custody if you or your spouse is moving out of New York, including:

  • How will custody or visitation work?
  • Which state will have jurisdiction?
  • How can I help make decisions in my child's life?

Everyone's situation is different, so the answers to these questions vary. You do not have to worry, though. No matter your circumstances, the attorneys at the law offices of Keith B. Schulefand, Esq., can help you.
