Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Family Law litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
No, that's not technically true.
Under the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the US Constitution and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act, the court order from Texas is still valid UNLESS a court chances the order.
Now that both of you live in Utah, the courts of that state could take over jurisdiction for the case - - which can be done by filing a petition to have the case transferred from Texas to Utah.
Even if that were to happen, the visitation order would not automatically be changed.
thats what i thought
Either party could seek a modification of the visitation order and ask the Utah court to make a change, but it's not automatic.
the only modification was to move residence to utah thank you for your time
