As a dedicated Saratoga Child Custody Lawyer, I have often helped clients modify an out of state child custody order to suit New York’s.
- 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.
