If you are involved in a contentious and complex interstate child custody dispute, take action now by contacting us at (503) 641-7990.
Portland Area Attorneys Experienced in Child Relocation cases
The UCCJEA determines which state has jurisdiction in child custody litigation. If the child has lived with a parent for six consecutive months prior to the start of a proceeding, that state is considered the "home state." If the child also has significant connections in another state, the courts must work together and determine the state with the most significant connections.
