Child Custody and Visitation in Boynton Beach, FL

In a child custody and visitation case, a court of this state may not exercise its jurisdiction if, at the time of the commencement of the proceeding, a proceeding concerning the custody of the child has been commenced in a court of another state which obtained jurisdiction under requirements that are substantially in conformity with the jurisdictional requirements of the UCCJEA. In Billie v. Stier the Florida Court of Appeal recently stated: "Under the UCCJEA the Miccosukee Tribe is treated as a state in the United States. Section 61.519, Florida Statutes (2012), covers situations where there are simultaneous custody proceedings in this state and in another state. That statute provides that 'a court of this state may not exercise its jurisdiction under ss. 61.514-61.524 if, at the time of the commencement of the proceeding, a proceeding concerning the custody of the child had been commenced in a court of another state having jurisdiction substantially in conformity with this part.' ยง 61.519(1), Fla. Stat. (emphasis added).
