Interstate Custody

Moving Out of State with a Child

Out-of-state Relocation with a Child

California family courts do not have firm laws pertaining to interstate custody. Rather, they look at each case individually, making all determinations in the best interests of the child.

The courts will consider the reason for the move and how it will affect the child. If a parent is moving out of state for a job opportunity and the move could have a positive impact on the child, the relocation may be granted.

When a parent relocates with a child, modifications of child custody and visitation will likely be required. A current custody or visitation arrangement will no longer be applicable due to the change in circumstances. Attorney Debra S. Frank can help you with all the components of your interstate custody matter.

The law firm also represents parents in international child custody proceedings. Attorney Debra S. Frank has a thorough understanding of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) and how it pertains to California parents.
