Advice on Custody for Moms in Florida

How to get full Custody of their children is a topic of conversation I have multiple times each week with unmarried moms who want to know their rights. This article is intended to educate these moms. Before I get started, please note that the world of family law is VERY fact specific.  It is important that you contact a lawyer for advice. If you are in Broward County, or Miami Dade County, we would be happy to provide you a free consultation on these issues.

Jurisdiction over Custody/Children: The UCCJEA

When dealing with custody issues the first thing you must determine is who has jurisdiction. Jurisdiction is a State's power to make decisions over a certain issue and can be a tricky thing. When it comes to custody, states look to something called the UCCJEA, or Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act to determine jurisdiction. Jurisdiction cannot be consented to by the parties. So this is not a matter of what two parents agree to, it is a matter of determining which state has the power to make decisions under the UCCJEA.
