California Court of Appeal

Reset A A Font size: Print


The Uniform Interstate Family Support Act does not establish a mechanism for settling upon a single order as controlling among multiple spousal support orders. The parties' 1977 divorce decree in California did not invest California with exclusive jurisdiction over spousal support, thus the trial court's order confirming registration of the Utah support orders is affirmed.
