(a) The obligee submits to the jurisdiction of a tribunal of this state, either expressly or by defending on the merits of the case without objecting to the jurisdiction at the first available opportunity; or

(b) The foreign tribunal lacks or refuses to exercise jurisdiction to modify its support order or issue a new support order.

(2) If a tribunal of this state does not modify a Convention child support order because the order is not recognized in this state, ORS 110.660 (Recognition and enforcement of registered Convention support order) (3) applies. [2015 c.298 §72]
