Maitland Jurisdiction & Venue Issues Attorney

Legal Representation from Our Maitland Divorce Lawyer

When couples or parents live in different states, it presents a unique set of challenges in family law matters such as divorce, child custody, support, and enforcement. To ensure issues are being handled in the proper jurisdiction and your rights are being protected, it is in your best interest to seek the advice of an experienced family law attorney.

The state of Florida has adopted a version of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act into its laws.

The act does the following:

  • Discourages continuing custody controversies
  • Deters abductions
  • Attempts to establish guidelines for custody disputes between states
  • Assures that litigation concerning the custody of a child ordinarily takes place in the state with which the child and the child’s family have the closest connection

Protect Your Jurisdictional Rights

The selection of the state in which to file your cause of action is the initial step in your family law matter. Our aim is to help our clients sort out the sometimes complex issues involved in multistate divorce and custody matters.

Similar questions arise when divorcing or divorced parents live in different counties within Florida. Determining the appropriate county in which to file your family law matter is an important step that can impact the outcome of your litigation.

It will also impact you individually. The venue of the case determines whether you or the other party will be inconvenienced by having to travel to and from the county of the litigation. The venue will have cost implications resulting from possible travel and accommodation issues, witness convenience issues, and the costs associated with expert witnesses.

There are also differences in the decisions made by judges in different counties and areas of the state. The issues of jurisdiction and venue are determined and/or litigated in the beginning of your case, but can have long-term ramifications. Without the proper counsel early in your case, you may waive these issues to the detriment of your interests.
