(1) the obligee submits to the jurisdiction of a tribunal of this state, either expressly or by defending on the merits of the case without objecting to the jurisdiction at the first available opportunity; or
(2) the foreign tribunal lacks or refuses to exercise jurisdiction to modify its support order or issue a new support order.
