7206 - Enforcement and modification of support order by tribunal having continuing jurisdiction.

     § 7206.  Enforcement and modification of support order by
                tribunal having continuing jurisdiction.
        (a)  Initiating tribunal.--A tribunal of this State may serve
     as an initiating tribunal to request a tribunal of another state
     to enforce or modify a support order issued in that state.
        (b)  Responding tribunal.--A tribunal of this State having
     continuing, exclusive jurisdiction over a support order may act
     as a responding tribunal to enforce or modify the order. If a
     party subject to the continuing, exclusive jurisdiction of the
     tribunal no longer resides in the issuing state, in subsequent
     proceedings, the tribunal may apply section 7316 (relating to
     special rules of evidence and procedure) to receive evidence
     from another state and section 7318 (relating to assistance with
     discovery) to obtain discovery through a tribunal of another
     state.
        (c)  Lack of jurisdiction.--A tribunal of this State which
     lacks continuing, exclusive jurisdiction over a spousal support
     order may not serve as a responding tribunal to modify a spousal
     support order of another state.
