3115.40 Effect of registration for enforcement.

A support order or income withholding order issued in another state is registered when the order is filed in the registering tribunal of this state pursuant to section 3115.39 of the Revised Code. A registered order issued in another state that is confirmed pursuant to section 3115.43 or 3115.44 of the Revised Code is enforceable in the same manner and is subject to the same procedures as an order issued by a tribunal of this state. Except as provided in sections 3115.39 to 3115.51 of the Revised Code, a tribunal of this state shall recognize and enforce, but may not modify, a registered order that has been confirmed if the issuing tribunal had jurisdiction.
