769.207 769.207 Recognition of controlling child support order.
769.207(1c)(1c) If a proceeding is brought under this chapter and only one tribunal has issued a child support order, the child support order of that tribunal is controlling and must be recognized.
769.207(1m) (1m) If a proceeding is brought under this chapter, and 2 or more child support orders have been issued by tribunals of this state or another state with regard to the same obligor and child, a tribunal of this state shall apply the following rules in determining which child support order to recognize for purposes of continuing, exclusive jurisdiction:
769.207(1m)(a) (a) If only one of the tribunals would have continuing, exclusive jurisdiction under this chapter, the child support order of that tribunal is controlling and must be recognized.
769.207(1m)(b) (b) If more than one of the tribunals would have continuing, exclusive jurisdiction under this chapter, a child support order issued by a tribunal in the current home state of the child must be recognized, but if a child support order has not been issued in the current home state of the child, the child support order most recently issued is controlling and must be recognized.
769.207(1m)(c) (c) If none of the tribunals would have continuing, exclusive jurisdiction under this chapter, the tribunal of this state having jurisdiction over the parties must issue a child support order, which is controlling and must be recognized.
769.207(1r) (1r) If 2 or more child support orders have been issued for the same obligor and child and if the obligor or the individual obligee resides in this state, a party may request a tribunal of this state to determine which child support order controls and must be recognized under sub.

(1m) (a) or (b), or that issues a new child support order that is controlling under sub. (1m) (c), shall include in that order the basis upon which the tribunal made its determination.
769.207(4) (4) Within 30 days after the issuance of an order determining which child support order is controlling, the party that obtained the order shall file a certified copy of the order with each tribunal that had issued or registered an earlier child support order.
