Need help with an interstate child custody or support matter? Get the guidance you need by contacting our interstate custody attorneys in Houston at (281) 612-5443.


Interstate support orders and modifications are governed by the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act, or UIFSA. Every state in the U.S., including Texas, operates under UIFSA, which makes support obligations enforceable, even when the child lives in a different state than the parent ordered to provide support. It also establishes jurisdiction for the support matter and prevents more than one support order from being implemented at a time.

UIFSA rules how modifications and support orders are handled in specific situations:

  • If a couple with children divorces in Texas, any support order will be created under Texas jurisdiction. If one spouse moves out of state, the support order generally remains under Texas’s jurisdiction.
  • If both parents move out of the state where the original support order was created, UIFSA designates which state will govern the new support order—generally, the new home state of the child.
  • If the supporting parent lives in another state and misses child support payments, UIFSA allows for interstate wage withholding.

Representation for Interstate Disputes

Just as no two families are alike, no two custody or support issues can be handled the same way. That’s why you want an attorney with extensive experience in family law, the Texas court system, and Attorney General cases to fight for the best arrangement for your family. In short, you want Cynthia Tracy, Attorney at Law, P.C. when you are looking for child support and custody lawyers.
