Chapter 82 - Jurisdiction
8202 - Recognition of support orders.

     § 8202.  Recognition of support orders.
        (a)  Principles.--If a proceeding is brought under this part
     and more than one support order has been issued in this
     Commonwealth with regard to the same obligation, a tribunal
     shall apply the following rules in determining which order to
     recognize for purposes of continuing, exclusive jurisdiction:
            (1)  If two or more tribunals have issued support orders
        for the same obligation and only one of the tribunals would
        have continuing, exclusive jurisdiction under this part, the
        order of that tribunal must be recognized.
            (2)  If two or more tribunals have issued support orders
        for the same obligation and more than one of the tribunals
        would have continuing, exclusive jurisdiction under this
        part, an order issued by a tribunal in the county where the
        obligee resides must be recognized, but, if an order has not
        been issued in the county where the obligee resides, the
        order most recently issued must be recognized.
            (3)  If two or more tribunals have issued support orders
        for the same obligation and none of the tribunals would have
        continuing, exclusive jurisdiction under this part, the
        tribunal may issue a support order which must be recognized.
        (b)  Result.--The tribunal that has issued an order
     recognized under subsection (a) is the tribunal having
     continuing, exclusive jurisdiction.
