Note to non-California attorneys:
I am licensed to practice law by the California State Bar and can provide no legal advice on the law of any state other than California. However, many family law and general civil issues have nationwide application. Multistate family law involves several Uniform Acts, Federal laws and cases applicable to all states and interstate issues such as jurisdictional conflicts. I can provide research and briefing on such issues as well as on California law as applicable to non-California cases. Inquiries on these issues are welcome.
