Requirements for Interstate Child Custody

In order for a court to have jurisdiction to enter orders regarding a child’s custody or visitation, that child would need to have resided in Iowa for at least 180 days. This requirement would be in addition to any residency requirements of the parents for their divorce. A parent needs to have lived in Iowa for at least one year prior to filing for divorce unless both parents live in the state. There are several instances where a party may be able to file for divorce earlier, such as when a parent is fleeing an abusive spouse or when a child is the victim of abuse or neglect.
