Q: How to enforce court order for visits in GA from NE jurisdiction
Need GA child custody lawyer
A: If the order was issued from another state and is being enforced in Georgia, you will need to domesticate the order in Georgia before it can be enforced.
A: The first step is to get certified copies of the out of state order, as that is what you will need in order to domesticate and enforce it in Georgia.
First, you may wish to consult with a local attorney here to review the language of the order(s) that award you visitation. A competent attorney in this manner will also provide you options. Hopefully both personal jurisdiction of the other parent and the order(s) of which you speak are the same State.
