25-9B-611 Modification of child support order of another state.
Modification of child support order of another state.
(a) After a child support
order issued in another state has been registered in this state, the responding tribunal of this state may
modify that order only if § 25-9B-613 does not apply and, after notice and hearing, it finds that:
The following requirements are met:
The child, the individual obligee, and the obligor do not reside in the issuing state;
A petitioner who is a nonresident of this state seeks modification; and
The respondent is subject to the personal jurisdiction of the tribunal of this state;
An individual party or the child is subject to the personal jurisdiction of the tribunal and
all of the individual parties have filed a written consent in the issuing tribunal providing
that a tribunal of this state may modify the support order and assume continuing,
exclusive jurisdiction over the order. However, if the issuing state is a foreign jurisdiction
which has not enacted this chapter, the written consent of the individual party residing in
this state is not required for the tribunal to assume jurisdiction to modify the child support
(b) Modification of a registered child support order is subject to the same requirements,
procedures, and defenses that apply to the modification of an order issued by a tribunal of this state
and the order may be enforced and satisfied in the same manner.
(c) A tribunal of this state may not modify any aspect of a child support order that may not be
modified under the law of the issuing state. If two or more tribunals have issued child support orders
for the same obligor and child, the order that is controlling and must be recognized under the
provisions of § 25-9B-207 establishes the nonmodifiable aspects of the support order.
(d) On the issuance of an order modifying a child support order issued in another state, a tribunal
of this state becomes the tribunal of continuing, exclusive jurisdiction.
