Duty to enforce
Domestic Relations (DOM) CHAPTER 14, ARTICLE 5-A, TITLE 3
§ 77-b. Duty to enforce. 1. A court of this state shall recognize and
enforce a child custody determination of a court of another state if the
latter court exercised jurisdiction in substantial conformity with this
article or the determination was made under factual circumstances
meeting the jurisdictional standards of this article and the
determination has not been modified in accordance with this article;
provided, however, that recognition and enforcement of the determination
would not violate subdivision one-c of section two hundred forty of this
chapter or section one thousand eighty-five of the family court act.

2. A court of this state may utilize any remedy available under other
law of this state to enforce a child custody determination made by a
court of another state. The remedies provided in this title are
cumulative and do not affect the availability of other remedies to
enforce a child custody determination.
