My Child And Their Other Parent Live In A Different State, Where Should I File For Child Custody?
where is the best place to file for child custody?
I received the following question from a prospective client: I live in a different state than the mother of my child and my child, but I want to file for child custody, where is the best place for me to file?
Unfortunately, there’s only one answer for this, and the answer is you must file for child custody in the state where the child has lived for six months immediately proceeding with your filing of the custody complaint. So if mom and child are living in a different state than you for more than six months, that state where the child resides is now considered to be the child’s state of residence, and that is where you must begin any custody proceedings.
I’ve been getting questions about custody quite a bit, and there are many different topics about custody on the website if you’d like to go take a look at the videos. The differences between the physical and joint custody, sole custody, what does that mean? And the best way to get custody of your child if you and their mom have never been married.
