The Family Law Managing Associate, Elyse Butler, of Boyd Contreras, APC recently won a complex
jurisdictional matter involving a child custody dispute and the Uniform Child Custody
Jurisdiction And Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). This act vests "exclusive and continuing
jurisdiction" for child custody litigation in the courts of the child's "home
state". In cases where a child's "home state" is in question, it is necessary to
have a strong litigation attorney to examine witness and argue effectively in trial.
Butler's knowledge and skills as a litigation associate enables her to handle such a complex matter,
ultimately resulting in a favorable ruling for our client.
