(1) The order if the order is the controlling order and has not been modified by a tribunal of another state that assumed jurisdiction pursuant to the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act; or
(2) A money judgment for arrears of support and interest on the order accrued before a determination that an order of a tribunal of another state is the controlling order.
(b) A tribunal of this State having continuing jurisdiction over a support order may act as a responding tribunal to enforce the order. [L 1997, c 295, pt of §1; am L 2015, c 77, pt of §1]
Where New Mexico had continuing, exclusive jurisdiction over its spousal support order, New Mexico could act as a responding tribunal to enforce or modify its order; husband and wife were subject to the continuing, exclusive jurisdiction of New Mexico notwithstanding the fact that neither resided in New Mexico; because Hawaii lacked continuing, exclusive jurisdiction over New Mexico's spousal support order, Hawaii could not serve as a responding tribunal to modify New Mexico's spousal support order, but could enforce it. 111 H. 51 (App.), 137 P.3d 365 (2006).Section: Previous 576b-104 576b-105 576b-201 576b-202 576b-203 576b-204 576b-205 576b-206 576b-207 576b-208 576b-209 576b-210 576b-211 576b-301 576b-302 Next
