About This Episode

On this episode of the Men’s Divorce Podcast, Scott Trout, CEO & Managing Partner of Cordell & Cordell, and Enrico Zanella, Senior Litigation Attorney, chat about the real-world challenges of custody when parents live in different states.

Together they break everything down, such as, the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), which helps figure out custody matters between states. This episode dives into the term “home state” and why it matters so much, especially when a child hasn’t lived in one state for six months.

Mr. Trout and Mr. Zanella discuss exceptions to the rules, like emergencies or situations where the court might have a say. They also get into the nitty-gritty of a parent wanting to move a child out of state, exploring when courts might say yes or no based on what’s best for the kid. If you’re dealing with custody headaches across state lines, this episode is your guide to making sense of it all.

If you are facing divorce and not sure where to turn, contact a Cordell & Cordell divorce attorney.
