The article offers updates on the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) following its amendment in the U.S. It highlights the role of UIFSA in representing a waiver of state sovereignty in family law, and in restoring the confusing modification of orders and jurisdiction in multiple states. It notes on the increasing interests of the military legal assistance lawyers of recognizing interstate and international obstacles in the enforcement of the child support law.
