Interstate Custody and Jurisdiction

Sometimes parents are under a lot of strain during divorce proceedings when children are involved. This is compounded by financial and emotional factors due to the high cost of living in this State and the lack of emotional support from family. As a result, they take the children and move out of the State of California and opt to go to their State of origin without the consent of the remaining parent or without obtaining a court order.

It is possible to legally move away and establish the children’s residence in another State or City within the same State.

Elainie Honjas will advise you if and how you can move away with your children within the statutory provisions of the Family Code.

To discuss Interstate Custody, call our office at (408) 292-4849 and schedule an initial consultation.

Client Reviews
"Two thumbs up for Elainie. She's experienced and easy to work with, and I've used her services for over a decade now on a variety of issues. She will not push hard to get what you want if you are being unreasonable, as she wants her cases to have solid justification. Overall, a very good attorney, and especially good if you want to have a more harmonious resolution to your case." M.P.
"Elainie Honjas has been my attorney for six years now. She has worked more than one legal miracle for me. With her profound experience in the Courts of Santa Clara County I have consistently found her advice to be sound and wise. Not only is Ms. Honjas a really effective professional, in my opinion, with a well respected reputation and lots of very strong contacts throughout the local Legal community, enabling her to negotiate matters effectively outside of the Courtroom, but I have also found her to be a really warm human being with a great sense of humor and a big heart..."
