I was granted temporary custody with my order of protection from abuse. Will another state enforce this custody order?

Yes. Custody, visitation, and child support provisions that are included in a protection order can be enforced across state lines. Law enforcement and courts in another state are required by federal law to enforce these provisions.1

1 18 USC § 2266
