Interstate Custody Jurisdiction Attorney in Massachusetts

Worcester Child Parental Rights Lawyer

Has your former spouse decided to move out of state? Did you relocate to Massachusetts following a divorce and don't know how to handle a visitation dispute?

Parents who move out of the state where they were divorced can have unique issues in enforcing and modifying custody and visitation issues. In general, the court that handled the custody proceeding has jurisdiction over that matter. Thus, courts in other states will uphold the order and refer any further proceedings to the state in which it was decreed.

Worcester family law Attorney Jennifer Melia offers more than 15 years of experience, and is highly familiar with interstate custody jurisdiction issues. She will take the time to explain the matter so that you have a firm understanding of your rights, obligations and legal requirements under the system.
