Interstate Custody Issues

Protecting The Interests of Children and the Rights of Parents in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma,  Nebraska, and Indiana

All child custody issues have the potential to become complicated and intensely emotional for parents and their children. Custody and parenting time is often the most vexing issue in a divorce and between unmarried parents, even when both parents are making an honest effort to arrive at an outcome that is in the best interest of the children. Parents living in different states add a whole new layer of complexity to the issue, creating the potential for confusion, agitation, and extensive litigation. Having an experienced attorney working with you is a must if you face an interstate custody issue in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Indiana. 

Finding Lasting Solutions For Interstate Custody Issues

Everything about interstate custody cases is more difficult, starting with determining which state has jurisdiction over the case. This issue is governed by the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), which is complicated for even the most experienced family law attorneys to navigate. Having attorneys with a proven track record of resolving complex interstate issues is critical, and is exactly what you will find at Stange Law Firm.

Standing Up For Children Regardless of Jurisdiction

No matter what state has jurisdiction over your child custody matter, you can rely on Stange Law Firm to pursue an outcome that is in the best interest of your children. Some of the attorneys at the firm are trained guardians ad litem. This knowledge and experience are particularly beneficial in custody cases as guardians play an instrumental role in the outcomes of these cases.

Full Service Child Custody Representation

Our child custody practice focuses on protecting the wellbeing of children and the rights of parents. We handle issues such as:
Often called parenting time, visitation is the amount of time a noncustodial parent spends with his or her child. We can handle a broad spectrum of visitation matters.
Creating a parenting plan
Getting visitation rights means drafting a parenting plan that works. We can help.
Relocation with a child
Courts have continuing jurisdiction over child custody and visitation orders. So, when a parent wants to move, it is usually necessary to get the court's permission first. Failure to do so can put your time with your child in jeopardy.
Enforcement of orders
If a parent fails to follow a child custody order, it may be possible to take him or her to court to enforce the order.
Contempt of court
If you are found to have repeatedly ignored a court order, you may be found in contempt of court.
Modification of orders:
When you need a court order changed, you can work with the experienced attorneys at Stange Law Firm, PC.
Custody Issues for Nonmarried Parents
Next to divorce actions, paternity cases (custody and support cases between unmarried parents) are among the most common cases in family law.
Parental Rights
Parents are often concerns about their parental rights, especially fathers in certain circumstances.
Family Access Motions
If you are being denied access to your children, you may want to consider a family access motion.
Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act
If you have jurisdictional issues involving your custody case, you will want an attorney familiar with the UCCJEA.
Custody Evaluations
If you have a complex custody case where psychological issues or abuse may be in play, you might want to consider a child custody evaluation
Hague Convention
If you are dealing with an international child custody dispute, and perhaps child abduction, knowing about the Hague Convention is often critical.
Third-Party Custody
If you are not the biological parents, in certain cases all may not be lost. You might have a right to third party custody in certain situations.
Fertility and Surrogacy
Fertility and surrogacy is a growing area of the law for those who want children.
In some custody cases, parties might live far apart. This can result in difficult child custody cases with transportation at issue.
