WVC 48 - 16 - 614
§48-16-614. Notice to issuing tribunal of modification.
Within thirty days after issuance of a modified child support
order, the party obtaining the modification shall file a certified
copy of the order with the issuing tribunal that had continuing,
exclusive jurisdiction over the earlier order and in each tribunal
in which the party knows the earlier order has been registered. A
party who obtains the order and fails to file a certified copy is
subject to appropriate sanctions by a tribunal in which the issue
of failure to file arises. The failure to file does not affect the
validity or enforceability of the modified order of the new
tribunal having continuing, exclusive jurisdiction.
