Jurisdiction

We assist clients with interstate and international jurisdiction issues, including:

  • Child abduction (Hague Convention)
  • Child custody jurisdiction (UCCJEA)
  • International travel of minor children
  • Relocation
  • Registration and enforcement of foreign decrees

The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), is United States law designed to deter interstate parental kidnapping and promote uniform jurisdiction and enforcement provisions in interstate child custody and visitation cases.

The Hague Convention of 25 October 1980 on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction is a treaty with the goal of protecting children from the harmful effects of abduction and retention across international boundaries. It provides a procedure to bring about the prompt return of wrongfully-removed children.

Attorney Aaron D. Bundy is on the U.S. State Department’s referral list for Hague Convention matters.

Oklahoma’s family law statutes set out a procedure for proposing relocation of minor children and objecting to proposed relocation. Oklahoma’s child relocation law and its application have been the subject of many appeals, giving Oklahoma attorneys and parents guidance for relocation matters.

Due to our reputation and track record of success in interstate and international custody cases, the Law Office of Aaron D. Bundy, PLC, serves as Oklahoma counsel in a joint capacity with attorneys from outside jurisdictions in cases where there is a dispute about where a divorce or custody action should occur.
