On interstate custody arrangements, and what you need to know

Imagine that you and your high school sweetheart have been together for years, and you finally decide it is time to get married. You walk down the aisle and everything is great. As the years pass, you also decide it is time to have a child. The magical day comes to pass when your son or daughter is born, and both you and your spouse are very happy.

Poughkeepsie-Child-Custody-Lawyers.jpgBut the years keep passing, and your relationship with your spouse keeps changing -- for the worse. Eventually, the two of you realize that your marriage simply can't endure the issues that you two have. As a result, both of you decide it is time to divorce.

Deciding this is no small step, and you both realize that you have a child to take care of during this difficult legal process. The best interests of your child are paramount. But your interests still matter too. What can make things even more complicated during this already complex time is if the spouses move to, or already live in, different states.

Interstate custody is a complex problem, and the arrangements that follow will be dictated by the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act.

The obvious rule of thumb here is that you should not go it alone during a divorce, let alone a divorce where child custody is an issue. Consult with an experienced family law attorney when you are in need of counsel.
