Child Custody Orders

Code: DF-7000.1450

Programs that register, maintain and where appropriate, provide certified copies of the official document that identifies the adult or agency with the legal authority and duty to manage the affairs and care of a minor child and, where relevant, the visitation rights of the noncustodial parent. Copies of child custody decrees may be requested by courts in a state other than the child's "home state" in cases of interstate child custody proceedings or by other persons who are affected by or have a legitimate interest in the decree.
