Uniform Interstate Family Support Act
Virginia Child or Spousal Support Modification Lawyers
The Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) addresses issues involving a child and spousal support orders where one or both parents have moved away from the state where the order was originally established. Virginia enacted the UIFSA in 1994.
As a rule, the court that originally established the order maintains jurisdiction over it as long as at least one of the spouses still lives in the state. Upon establishing residency in another state, either spouse can petition the local court to transfer jurisdiction for the purposes of establishing, enforcing and modifying support orders.
These proceedings can become quite complex, and it is important that you have strong representation from a qualified attorney who has the ability to protect your interests. At Hale Ball, our northern Virginia interstate family support lawyers represent clients in a wide variety of these cases.
