8103 - Remedies cumulative.

     § 8103.  Remedies cumulative.
        Remedies provided by this part are cumulative and do not
     affect the availability of remedies under other law. The
     procedures established by Pa.R.C.P. No. 1910.1 et seq. (relating
     to action for support) shall be used in preference to the
     procedures of this part unless any of the following applies:
            (1)  The tribunal or domestic relations section
        determines that use of this part is necessary for the
        effective establishment or enforcement of support because any
        of the following apply:
                (i)  After diligent effort, the obligee is unable to
            effect service upon the obligor.
                (ii)  It is not possible to enter an order against
            the obligor in the county where the obligee resides.
                (iii)  The obligor is already subject to an order for
            support in the case at bar or in any other case.
            (2)  The obligee requests proceedings under this part.
