Winter Park Jurisdiction & Venue Issues Attorney

Florida Family Lawyer Helping Clients with Multi-State Divorce

Legal family issues, such as divorce, child custody, child support, and other matters can quickly become more complicated when spouses or parents live in different states or counties. It is important that your case is handled in the correct jurisdiction to avoid potential problems, and to ensure that your interests are represented. The Winter Park jurisdiction and venue issues attorneys at the Troum Law Firm, P.A. are experienced with multi-state and multi-county divorce and custody issues, and can guide you through this complex and often stressful process to accomplish your goals.

Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act

After divorce or separation, it is not uncommon for ex-spouses or partners to move out of the city or state to get a fresh start on life. On the other hand, moving itself can be one of the causes of divorce. Two of the top 10 causes of divorce, according to Huffington Post, are an inability to solve conflicts and different priorities and interests—one spouse may have a job opportunity in another state or wish to move closer to family, while the other wants to stay. If the spouses have different priorities about where to live, and do not have the ability to compromise or solve the problem, divorce is almost inevitable. Florida is also the single most visited state in the country, according to Livability. However, residents tend to move in and out of Florida at faster rates than many other places in the country. Because so many parents live in different states and couples may move out of state after or even during divorce, Florida has adopted a version of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act. The Act provides the following:

  • Discourages ongoing child custody controversies;
  • Deters parental child abductions;
  • Creates room for guidelines regarding custody disputes between states; and
  • Ensures that child custody litigation takes place in the state that the child and family have the most connection with.

In Which Florida County Should I File My Family Law Matter In?

The county that you file your divorce, child custody, or enforcement case in also matters. Not only does the venue impact your convenience of travel to and from, as well as the convenience and cost of witnesses and expert witnesses, but judges in different counties are likely to have different opinions and come to different conclusions.
