Change in Custody Hearing Location

by | Nov 4, 2020 | Firm News, Florida Family Law

Will I have to travel to my ex’s county if she doesn’t have transportation to the custody battle? I am filing for divorce with my kids in my county, but because my ex does not have a vehicle, she said that I would have to go to her county to go through the custody battle. I am wondering if the limited transportation could force a change in location during the custody battle.

The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act has a specific provision for this issue. When multiple venues for a child custody proceeding may be proper, courts may consider which is most convenient for the parties. You should hire an experienced child custody attorney who understands how the UCCJEA can benefit you and ensure that your case proceeds as smoothly as possible. Contact the law offices of Mark E.
