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

If your protection order includes custody, visitation, and child support, these parts of the order can be enforced in any state. Law enforcement and courts must enforce your temporary custody order as long as it meets certain federal law standards.1

To have someone read your order and tell you if it meets these standards, contact a lawyer in the new state. To find a lawyer, go to Finding a Lawyer and choose the state from the drop-down menu.
