Modifying an Out of State Custody Order
Do you need help modifying an out of state child custody order to suit in New York? Check out this video, then give our lawyers a call.
- An issuing state retains jurisdiction to modify its own order; therefore, absent certain circumstances, it can be difficult to modify an out-of-state order.
- Often, while one party continues to reside there, the issuing state will retain jurisdiction.
- If the court determines that New York has become the appropriate state to modify the order – or if neither party, nor the child, resides in the issuing state – an out-of-state order may be modified.
