AS 25.30.350. Simultaneous Proceedings.
- (a) Except as otherwise provided in AS 25.30.330
, a court of this state may not exercise its jurisdiction under AS 25.30.300
- 25.30.390 if, at the time of the commencement of
the proceeding, a proceeding concerning the custody of the child had been previously commenced in a court of another
state having jurisdiction substantially in conformity with this chapter unless the proceeding has been terminated or is
stayed by the court of the other state because a court of this state is a more convenient forum under provisions
substantially similar to AS 25.30.360.
- (b) Except as otherwise provided in AS 25.30.330
, a court of this state, before hearing a child custody proceeding, shall examine the court documents and other
information supplied by the parties under AS 25.30.380. If the court determines that a child custody
proceeding has been commenced in a court in another state having jurisdiction substantially in accordance with this
chapter, the court of this state shall stay its proceeding and communicate with the court of the other state. If the
court of the state having jurisdiction substantially in accordance with this chapter does not determine that the court
of this state is a more appropriate forum, the court of this state shall dismiss the proceeding.
- (c) In a proceeding to modify a child custody determination, a court of this state shall determine whether a proceeding to
enforce the determination has been commenced in another state. If a proceeding to enforce a child custody determination
has been commenced in another state, the court may
- (1) stay the proceeding for modification pending the entry of an order of a court of the other state enforcing, staying,
denying, or dismissing the proceeding for enforcement;
- (2) enjoin the parties from continuing with the proceeding for enforcement; or
- (3) proceed with the modification under conditions it considers appropriate.
