Representing People In Interstate Divorce Concerns

Disputes can arise between spouses that live in different states that give rise to particularly challenging jurisdictional issues. Property division, child support, alimony, custody and visitation all may have to be dealt with while your spouse lives in a different state from you.

At Daniels & Rothman, we handle all out-of-state divorce issues from our office in Athens, Georgia. Greg Daniels, one of our firm’s founding lawyers, focuses on family law and divorce. We utilize his skill and experience when representing clients wishing to seek legal action against a spouse living in another state.

Helping You Deal With Out-Of-State Divorce Issues

The main issue confronted by people seeking to bring an out-of-state spouse into a Georgia courtroom is figuring out what court to file their claim in. Georgia adopted the following acts to allow out-of-state divorce issues to be addressed in local courts:

  • Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) – Addresses the widespread problem of the nonpayment of child support and jurisdictional confusion
  • Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) – Grants continuing and exclusive jurisdiction in child custody matters in the home state of the child
  • Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act (PKPA) – Establishes national standards for child custody issues

We are dedicated attorneys dealing with the issues facing parents and take a long-term view of your case. We fight for your rights at every turn.
