Modifying, Enforcing, or Defending Out-of-State Orders
In our increasingly mobile society, it is not uncommon for parents to live in different states and countries. Unfortunately, this can create substantial legal difficulties, as court orders from different states may not be immediately applicable in Texas, or they may conflict with Texas’ laws. Fortunately, there are legal processes in place to resolve these types of jurisdictional issues.
The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) and the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) establish a consistent standard of rules and limitations to resolve issues that may be caused by out-of-state orders. Qualified legal assistance can help those dealing with these types of issues to ensure that their legal rights and interests are given the fullest protection under the law.
