IN RE ADOPTION OF BABY E.Z.: E.Z. DUZ IT

Abstract

Part I of this Note provides the background of the Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act, Baby Emma's custody cases, and the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the U.S. Constitution as it relates to adoption and custody issues. Part II supports the Utah Supreme Court's determinations that the PKPA to adoptions, and that the PKPA did not divest the Utah courts of subject-matter jurisdiction. Finally, Part III examines two possible analytical frameworks and argues that the Virginia order is entitled full faith and credit protection and the Utah order is not.
