Can a Divorcing Spouse Remove a Child to a Different State to Seek More “Favorable” Laws?
No, California is a member of the compact called the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act, signed by 46 states, which recognizes the child’s home state at the time of the divorce decree as having jurisdiction over all issues relating to child custody and parental rights. Only if a child has not lived in California for more than six months may the local jurisdiction assume jurisdiction.
