I was granted temporary custody with my restraining order. Will I still have temporary custody of my children in the U.S. Virgin Islands?

Yes.  As long as the child custody provision complies with certain federal laws,1 the U.S. Virgin Islands can enforce a temporary custody order that is a part of a protection order.

To have someone read over your order and tell you if it meets these standards, contact a lawyer in your area.  To find a lawyer in your area click here VI Finding a Lawyer.

1 The federal laws are the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act (UCCJA) or the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), and the Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act of 1980.
