Our increasingly mobile society has altered domestic practice in recent years. With more and more parents living in separate states, family practitioners often are forced to address the complexities of interstate custody and support in the context of a divorce proceeding. Attorneys must understand the nuances of the governing statutes and must be adept at negotiating parenting and support orders across jurisdictions.

During this two-hour seminar, attendees will become more familiar with the laws that control interstate custody and support, and also will learn the skills and tactics necessary to smoothly and effectively resolve these difficult cases.
