A few more minutes please as I'm reviewing the statute.
Under the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act, a federal Act applicable in all states, the issuing court retains jurisdiction over child support unless ALL parties move out of state, or if both parents consent to the jurisdiction of a new state. Otherwise, the issuing state retains jurisdiction and their age of termination (when support is to end) governs. Otherwise there would be a motive for custodial parents to forum shop, finding states with more extensive child support laws.
