Protecting What Matters Most

Professional Legal 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.

I am family law attorney Keith Schulefand and at Keith B. Schulefand, Esq., in Buffalo, I have over 30 years of experience helping families with custody disputes. I believe that custody is about determining what is in the best interest of the children involved, not about winning or losing. I am 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, I have the knowledge and experience to help.

Protecting Your Children And Your Parental Rights

It is crucial to retain an experienced family law attorney as soon as possible in these cases. Child custody is already a sensitive legal issue, and interstate custody only adds even more complications.

I can offer advice at every step of the process to avoid serious consequences. I will proactively protect your parental rights while I seek fair resolutions in your child’s best interests.

I understand how important it is to maintain the parent-child relationship and am dedicated to helping you preserve that relationship into the future.
