Interstate/International Child Custody – Here is What You Need to Know

The quest for better jobs and living conditions encourages people to move from one place to another. However, these relocations often cause many legal problems because child custody laws in one state or country may be different than those in another state or country.

Interstate Custody

In case of interstate custody cases, there is a set of complex laws that are uniform across the country. If your child is traveling out of California with the other parent, it’s a good idea to create a written agreement regarding the return of the child. It can save you from a lot of legal problems later. Make sure you seek expert legal counsel so that you don’t have to face some common pitfalls.

There can be moving away or relocation cases where your partner might want to move to another state or country. The law office of Anne Dowden Saxton can help you tackle these difficult situations. 

International Custody

The US has signed several international treaties which call for cooperation in resolving international custody battles. When such disputes arise, both parents should hire an attorney who is well-versed in interstate and international custody issues. The attorney should be able to recognize conflicts between the child custody laws of different states and nations. At the law office of Anne Dowden Saxton, you’ll get expert advice for international custody battles.

Child Support Payments

When a parent, who has the custody rights takes the child out of state, it may affect the child support payments made by the noncustodial parent. If the custodial parent is moving out with the child, the non-custodial parent can contest the move and enforce their existing visitation rights. These issues can become even more complex when one or both parents cross the boundaries. Our attorneys have a thorough understanding of child custody laws and can help you protect your visitation rights.

Disputes can arise when one of the parents moves away with the child without obtaining a modification. In such situations, you need a competent California child custody attorney to represent your case. Our attorneys have the skill and resources to quickly respond to actions filed in multiple jurisdictions. At the Law Office of Anne Dowden Saxton, we are versed in child custody rights and ready to help you. Call us today for a free consultation.
