Michelle Woferts was venue or forum shopping in this case. She didn’t like the results of the custody ruling in Kansas so she finds a new venue or forum in Kansas. The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) was drafted in 1997 and has been adopted by 49 states. The UCCJEA vests “exclusive [and] continuing jurisdiction for “child custody litigation in the courts of the child’s home state (Kansas). The case belongs in Kansas and Michelle Wolferts and her oldest daughter Brittany Dangerfield were creating another forum and using the media as outlined in the protective parent playbook.
