UCCJEA - Enforcement Provisions

This lesson addresses the enforcement provisions of the child custody jurisdiction statutes. It also addresses the international aspects of child custody enforcement. The lesson should be worked after completing the lesson on Child Custody Jurisdiction.

The lesson assumes that the student is familiar with the provisions of the UCCJA, the PKPA, and the UCCJEA, but does not assume knowledge of the enforcement provisions of these statutes. The lesson does not assume that the student has a great deal of exposure to the international aspects of this issue, other than perhaps a brief overview of the Hague Convention and the International Parental Kidnapping Act.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of the lesson, the student will be able to:

  1. Discuss the enforcement provisions of the child custody jurisdiction statutes.
  2. Explain that because the UCCJEA is still relatively new, the law interpreting its provisions is still developing.
  3. State how the unsettled laws of the Hague Convention/ ICARA and the IPKA will allow attorneys to have the opportunity to assist courts in the development of these.
  4. Specify a policy underlying the laws covered in this lesson.
