Understanding and Applying the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA)

The UCCJEA is a set of uniform laws that provides rules to establish which jurisdiction’s court has authority when parties disputing child custody issues reside in two different states.

This class will cover topics including:

• The history and policy behind the UCCJEA
• What kinds of cases are or are not controlled by the UCCJEA?
• Navigating the UCCJEA – a template for analyzing your case and counseling clients
• Resources to use in presenting your case
