Skilled Legal Guidance For Your International Custody Dispute
The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act (UCCJA) and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) are terms of art in the practice of international custody law. Only the most experienced family law attorneys, those with a comprehensive command of custody law, should be trusted to use them toward resolutions of child access disputes between divorced parents.
In Charlestown and surrounding areas in Massachusetts, the seasoned family lawyer who regularly handles these complex matters is Andrew S. Guisbond, founder of the Law Offices of Andrew S. Guisbond.
The UCCJEA Replaced The UCCJA In Most States
In 2016, the UCCJEA replaced the UCCJA since the latter was found to conflict with the Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act (PKPA) where custody and jurisdiction decisions were concerned. Another advantage of UCCJEA’s dominance was the addition of uniform processes for registration and enforcement of interstate child custody orders.
However, Massachusetts does not recognize the new version of this law. This adds an additional layer of complexity to an already complex situation for parents. However, you can rely on Andrew S. Guisbond. He uses his 30-plus years of experience with complex custody issues to work hard for positive results and bring you peace of mind.
