Interstate Child Custody Appellate Attorney

Adult relationships can end, but parenting responsibilities continue. The division of parental rights is inherently unfair when one parent relocates.

There is a lot of room for error when a trial court considers interstate child custody disputes. Trial courts sometimes decide the issue using the wrong State's law or errs in considering the totality of the facts involved.

Interstate child custody appeals are typically very fact intensive, can include a battle of expert opinion, and require a keen attention to detail. The ramifications of each case is typically far reaching for everyone involved. Today's judgment will be the basis from which future child custody decisions are reviewed.

Interstate child custody issues are fluid, affected by changes in the lives of all involved. Perhaps the most drastic changes occur when the parent with primary custody of a child relocates with the child, an event typically with severe impact on the parental rights of the stay-behind parent.
