Child custody cases increasingly involve parents who no longer reside in the same state. It’s essential to understand how UCCJEA works so you can confidently advise and effectively represent your client in an interstate child custody matter. Important topics that will be presented include: Establishing an initial child custody order; “Home state” jurisdiction; Communication between courts of different states; Modifying an existing custody order; Temporary emergency jurisdiction; Recognition and Enforcing a custody order; and UCCJEA’s international application. Recent Maryland Court of Special Appeals cases, including Pilkington v. Pilkington (11/29/16); Cabrera v. Mercado (9/28/16); and Garba v. Ndiaye, 227 Md. App. 162 (2016), will be discussed.
