Enforcing visitation rights in interstate custody issues is an incredibly difficult task. This in part, is due to state-focused legislation regarding child custody. If a parent moves out of California for example, the child custody laws in California may not be applicable to them.

Does California Allow Interstate Custody Arrangements?
In California, there are no firm regulations about interstate custody. The courts only assess every case, and gives their verdicts based on their unique situation.
At the end of the day, the court’s priority is the child’s well-being. So, if the court, based on the evidence it’s presented, thinks an interstate custody arrangement would be best for the kid, chances are they’ll give the verdict.
The courts will weigh the appellant’s interstate custody request, their reasons for relocation, and the interests of the child. It will then make its determination based on those factors. If the relocation would ultimately benefit the child, the courts will most likely grant the appellant’s request –often with a clause that allows for a modification of the current child custody arrangements.
