Domestic Relations (DOM) CHAPTER 14, ARTICLE 5-A, TITLE 3
§ 77-c. Temporary visitation. 1. A court of this state which does not
have jurisdiction to modify a child custody determination, may, if
consistent with subdivision one-c of section two hundred forty of this
chapter or section one thousand eighty-five of the family court act,
issue a temporary order enforcing:

(a) a visitation schedule made by a court of another state; or

(b) the visitation provisions of a child custody determination of
another state that does not provide for a specific visitation schedule.

2. If a court of this state makes an order under paragraph (b) of
subdivision one of this section, it shall specify in the order a period
that it considers adequate to allow the petitioner to obtain an order
from a court having jurisdiction under the criteria specified in title
two of this article. The order remains in effect until an order is
obtained from the other court or the period expires.
