PA Child Custody: What is the UCCJEA?

This particular law seeks to make child custody procedures uniform across the United States. This is done through creating policies and procedures that apply across the board so that in the event that parents move or relocate with their child(ren), there are mechanisms in place for determining which state has child custody jurisdiction. Pennsylvania child custody laws include the UCCJEA and Pennsylvania judges can rely on these rules to answer jurisdictional questions in child custody cases.
