Interstate Custody and Child Support
Family Law Attorney Portland, OR

Oregon adheres to a model law called the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction And Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). That act adopts a concept called “home state” jurisdiction (power), which a state must ordinarily have to make decisions regarding child custody and parenting time.

The UCCJEA helps resolve conflicts about parenting time and custody when one or both parents have recently moved to Oregon, or if there is an existing, out-of-state order regarding custody or parenting time, and one or both parents have moved from the state that issued that order.

Sometimes, seeking relief under the UCCJEA can be complicated. Peter has ample experience with the UCCJEA, and can help you deal with interstate custody and parenting time issues.
