UCCJEA to Adopt Hague Convention on Child Protection and Jurisdiction
July 16th, 2013
Earlier this month the States voted to amend the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) to implement the Hague Convention on Jurisdiction and Protection of Children. The UCCJEA is a uniform set of laws that is codified in Iowa Code section 598B. The new amendments should provide more clarity for family law practitioners and judges who do not regularly practice in international family law.
