Arizona Interstate Custody Attorney
You Can Put Your Trust In Our Experience
Interstate custody issues are jurisdictional issues, meaning which court of law has jurisdiction over the child to decide a child custody proceeding. Arizona adopted the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) in 2000, and the Act is codified at A.R.S. §§ 25-1001-1067. The Act defines a child custody proceeding as a proceeding for divorce, separation, neglect, abuse, dependency, guardianship, paternity, termination of parental rights and protection from domestic violence, in which legal custody, physical custody or visitation with respect to a child is an issue or in which that issue may appear.
