Whose Case is it Anyway? Come Learn about the MCCJA & PKPA

May 25, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Did your client move to Massachusetts less than six months ago? Is there a pending custody case or outstanding custody order in another state?  If so, the courts in Massachusetts may not have jurisdiction to decide the client’s case.  Come learn about the Massachusetts Child Custody Jurisdiction Act and federal Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act.  We will review these complex laws and walk you through a series of fact patterns to help you learn how to analyze these issues in your own cases.  We will also discuss practical issues such as advising your clients about the risks and benefits of having the case heard in the other state; communication between the two courts, motions to dismiss on jurisdictional grounds, and more.2 CAFL CLEs
