What Should I Know About Out-Of-State Divorce And Custody?

Some of the most common topics that we discuss with clients facing out-of-state divorce and custody cases include:

  • Initial custody determinations between unmarried parents living in different states.
  • During a divorce, there will be a provision in the divorce decree that the county where the divorce was filed will have ongoing jurisdiction regardless of where the parents live.
  • If one or both parents have moved out of state, it is necessary to have custody matters, or any other matters related to the divorce, heard in the original jurisdiction or have the jurisdiction modified.
  • Out-of-state issues can also affect divorces that were finalized out of state, but have since had jurisdiction moved into Ohio by registering the custody order with an Ohio court.

Our attorneys are well-versed in all of the jurisdictional issues that can affect divorces, child custody matters or other family law issues. We are familiar with the nuances of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) — the law that governs inter-jurisdictional/interstate custody cases — and are frequently referred cases by out of state attorneys in this area of family law.
