If you were divorced in another state and are having issues regarding custody and visitation, you may be able to modify your court orders in the California Court, provided that you and your minor children meet the jurisdictional requirements. According to California Family Code Section 3443 (a) A court of this state shall recognize and enforce a child custody determination of a court of another state if the latter court exercised jurisdiction in substantial conformity with this part or the determination was made under factual circumstances meeting the jurisdictional standards of this part and the determination has not been modified in accordance with this part. This code would allow a party to file a Request for Order in the California Court to modify or enforce the custody and visitation provisions of a final Judgment. For legal advice on this issue, contact the Law Office of Richard Bawden for a consultation.
