WVC 48 - 16 - 105 §48-16-105. Application of article to resident of foreign country and foreign support proceeding.

     (a) A tribunal of this state shall apply parts I through VI [§48-16-101 et seq. through §48-16-601 et seq.] and, as applicable, part VII [§48-16-701 et seq.], to a support proceeding involving:

     (1) A foreign support order;

     (2) A foreign tribunal; or

     (3) An obligee, obligor, or child residing in a foreign country.

     (b) A tribunal of this state that is requested to recognize and enforce a support order on the basis of comity may apply the procedural and substantive provisions of parts I through VI.

     (c) Part VII [§48-16-701 et seq.] applies only to a support proceeding under the convention. In such a proceeding, if a provision of part VII [§48-16-701 et seq.] is inconsistent with parts 1 through VI [§48-16-101 et seq. through §48-16-601 et seq.], part VII [§48-16-701 et seq.] controls.
