Does my existing court order work across state lines?

| Jun 7, 2021 | Firm News

It happens all the time, someone has an order in one state, they try to enforce in another state, nothing happens. Clients ask me why, we are all one country, states are required to honor the laws of other states, when we drive across state lines we do not need to get another driver’s license, or new license plates on our car, why can’t our order from one state just be enforced in another?

The answer, in many areas, including their court systems, states are independent entities that get to set their own rules and policies to a large extent. If you have an order from one state it needs to be registered in another state to be enforced there. Registration is a process that takes some time. If you have an ex who is in another state and not following an order you need to get it registered in the state where your ex is, and, allow some time for that to happen, it can take up to a couple of months.
