    Domestic Violence and the UCCJEA


    The LRC and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) will be holding a free webinar on basic interstate custody issues for judges. The webinar will provide judges with a framework for analyzing interstate custody cases and determining whether they have jurisdiction to enter a temporary or final custody order. Judge Ramona Gonzalez and attorneys Deborah Goelman and Darren Mitchell will serve as faculty. The training is designed for judges who wish to understand how the UCCJEA applies to interstate custody cases, and will cover topics such as exercising emergency, initial or modification jurisdiction, judicial communication, and declining jurisdiction. A case scenario will be used to demonstrate how judges may evaluate jurisdictional questions when more than one state is involved.
