Interstate Issues (2023 Family Law Section Fall Program)

Has the "return to normalcy" following the pandemic really returned us to our pre-pandemic normal?

Now more than ever we live in a mobile society where interstate issues are at the forefront of many of the areas we deal with in our daily practice. Where a client and relevant parties live, move from, move to, and the implications of being able to work and date remotely, not to mention keep tabs on children and significant others through apps and trackers, must all be thoroughly examined (and reexamined) throughout the duration of our cases.

From the initial consideration of how to obtain jurisdiction over a party to the emergence of technology and its impacts on family law, this CLE manuscript helps you navigate these new waters and offers practical tips and considerations as we all learn how to practice in this new normal.

Specific topics include:

  • Tag! You're It! Personal Jurisdiction
  • Winner Takes All: Custody and Relocation
  • Alphabet Soup: UCCJEA and UIFSA
  • Somebody's Watching Me: Apps, Cell Phones, AirTags, GPS Trackers, Social Media, Nanny Cams, Ring Cameras, Oh My!
  • With a Little Help from My Friends: Practice Ideas in This Modern World
  • Times, They Are a-Changin': New Developments in Code of Ethics
