Hiring An Attorney To Handle Your Interstate & International Dispute
There are a plethora of different laws that may play a pivotal role in your dispute, given that each state within the US, and even each country, have their own set of laws and regulations. Jurisdiction plays a major role when it comes to determining the outcome of child custody disputes, so having an attorney to guide you through the process of figuring out exactly which jurisdiction is considered to be the child’s home state, thereby determining where the hearings are typically going to be held for the case.
Aside from determining jurisdiction, an attorney should assist you with creating a parenting plan that is in the best interests of the child, and ensure that the parent who is out of state and does not have primary custody receives proper visitation rights.
