04/14/20- J.S. (“Father”) appealed from the order, awarding sole legal and primary physical custody of the parties’ daughter, A.S. (“Child”), to R.S.S. (“Mother”). Father argued that the trial court lacked subject matter jurisdiction because Child resided in Hungary and had no significant connection with Pennsylvania. The Court concluded that Pennsylvania retained exclusive, continuing jurisdiction over the case because it would have been unjust to reward Father’s nefarious behavior.
