Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act defines “child custody determination” as a judgment, decree, or other order of a court providing for the legal custody, physical custody, or visitation with respect to a child. The term includes a permanent, temporary, initial, or modification order. Va. Code Ann. § 20-146.1. A “child custody proceeding” is a proceeding in which legal custody, physical custody, or visitation with respect to a child is an issue.
  • The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) defines “home state” as the state in which a child lived with a parent or a person acting as a parent for at least six consecutive months immediately before the commencement of a child custody proceeding. A period of temporary absence of any of the mentioned persons is part of the period. Va. Code Ann. § 20-146.1. Hence, a child’s “home state” is where the child has lived with one or more of his parents for the consecutive six-month period immediately preceding the date on which a child custody proceeding is filed. However, this is not the only six-month period a court must consider in analyzing initial jurisdiction over child custody under the UCCJEA, Va. Code Ann. § 20-146.12(A)(1).
