WomensLaw.org currently does not have state-specific information about Iowa custody laws. 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.
We hope the following links to outside sources may be helpful.
- Iowa Legal Aid has a lot of information on their website including the topics of modifying a custody order and joint custody.
- Iowa State Bar Association has an overview of different forms of custody, factors considered in a custody determination, paternity, and more.
- The Iowa Judicial Branch also has information about divorce, child custody, child support, paternity, and more.
