Jurisdiction Over Out-Of-State Parents or Parties in Minnesota
Once a Minnesota family court grants an order, that court usually has continuing jurisdiction over changes to that order, but not always. If an order no longer works for you or your spouse, it is best to talk with a lawyer about the legal implications if the child or a party resides outside Minnesota at the time you are seeking change. Conversely, if an order was entered in another state, and a party or the child now lives in Minnesota, it is important to know the specific legal requirements for Minnesota to enforce or modify a custody or support order from another state.
