Which state and what laws?

3 posts in this topic

Paternity of children (4) is established. A notarized divorce settlement has been signed by both husband and wife. This settlement paper has NOT been signed by a judge. In the notarized divorce settlement it is stated that the mother shall retain primary custody of the children. The mother has recently moved from California (children's state of residence) to Indiana to look for a suitable environment to raise her children. The children were left temporarily in the care of their father. Question: If the mother filed for full physical custody of her children in the state of Indiana, what state would the case take place in and would any of the other state's laws on family law apply? Thank you

CA retains full jurisdiction over the custody issues. You can't move to IN and seek to do anything regarding custody in that state.
