Relocation of Children and Other Child-Related Issues

At the law office of Rebecca L. Owen, PLLC, we keep the best interests of your children as a top priority. Many out-of-state family law issues deal with child relocation and require the assistance of an experienced Arizona child custody and relocation lawyer.

We assist clients dealing with interstate child support or interstate custody matters through the use of the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (the UIFSA) and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). We also represent you with your visitation concerns.

Support When a Parent or Former Spouse Is Out of State

Because Arizona has adopted the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA), a parent who moves away from the state must still make support payments. The support order will be enforced by the other states involved in the uniform enforcement act. It is important to have a Phoenix out-of-state family law attorney in your corner to determine if Arizona can hear your legal concerns. If both parents have moved out of state and agreed in writing to have another state take over jurisdiction of support enforcement and modification, Arizona may no longer exercise jurisdiction.
