Chapter 017 : SUPPORT PROCEEDING UNDER THE CONVENTION

(Cite as: 15B V.S.A. § 1711)
  • § 1711. Modification of convention support order

    (a) A tribunal of this State may not modify a Convention child-support order if the obligee remains a resident of the foreign country where the support order was issued unless:

    (1) the obligee submits to the jurisdiction of a tribunal of this State, either expressly or by defending on the merits of the case without objecting to the jurisdiction at the first available opportunity; or

    (2) the foreign tribunal lacks or refuses to exercise jurisdiction to modify its support order or issue a new support order.

    (b) If a tribunal of this State does not modify a Convention child-support order because the order is not recognized in this State, subsection 1708(c) of this title applies. (Added 2015, No. 16, § 2, eff. June 1, 2015.)
