Uniform Child-Custody Jurisdiction & Enforcement Act

Child Custody

Here at Booth family law we are known for a unique expertise in interstate and international child custody issues. Mr. Booth lectures, writes, and consults with attorney nationwide on chid custody. 

Child custody jurisdiction is a complex and specialized area of family law. The key statute that almost every state uses to regulate child custody jurisdiction is called the Uniform Child-Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act., UCCJEA.  

When there is an existing order, it can almost always be enforced anywhere in the U.S.A. But that order can’t be changed, parenting time can’t be modified or legal custody given or removed from a parent. New orders can not be issued unless the court has jurisdiction to do so.  In Kansas the Uniform Act is codified under, K.S.A. 23-37,101 et seq
