I heard there is a law called UIFSA what does this law do?

Allison Williams
UIFSA stands for the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act. UIFSA is a statute designed to help people establish and enforce their divorce obligations across state lines. So, if the former partner that created the child with you, resides out of state, that person cannot be relieved of an obligation simply because they are harder to catch. In other words, an application needs to be filed in the court where you reside in your court, here in New Jersey. The other party can also be held responsible for proceeding in court in their state. No person needs to travel across state lines, but the support obligation will still be established and enforced through the UIFSA.
