Michigan Law Review

After days of bitter contest, a weary judge dissolves the marriage bond and, lacking Solomon's sword, allots the child to his mother. Thus the stage is set for the second act of the tragedy.

Should a judge of the mother's new home state heed this change? And again, what should be done if …
