I was granted temporary custody with my domestic abuse restraining order.  Will another state enforce this custody order?

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