Please consider getting help from an organization in your area before proceeding with court action. Go to AR Places that Help to find organizations and legal services in your area. In our general Custody page, we have information about custody that is not specific to any state. The page includes a section about how to try to transfer your custody case to a new state where you are living so that you can modify the custody order from your new state.
