Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello, Thanks for choosing Justanswer.com! I look forward to helping you today. Please give me a moment to review your question and to answer you.
If your ex had lived in MI and still resided there, then the Uniform Child Custody and Jurisdiction Act would apply and "original continuing jurisdiction" would prevent you from moving the case. However, if neither parent lives in MI, then you need to file a motion asking MI to relinquish jurisdiction to AK since that is the child's state of residence.
The MI family law court may have a form for you to use so call the clerk to see about that.
In the meantime, if you need to go back to court for anything, you will surely be allowed to appear by telephone or video conferencing since you are so far away. This is done all the time nowadays.
