In applying and construing this Uniform Child Custody
Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act, consideration shall be given to the
need to promote uniformity of the law with respect to its subject
matter among states that enact it.
If any provision of this part or its application to any
person or circumstance is held invalid, the invalidity does not
affect other provisions or applications of this part that can be
given effect without the invalid provision or application, and to
this end the provisions of this part are severable.
A motion or other request for relief made in a child custody
proceeding or to enforce a child custody determination that was
commenced before the effective date of this part is governed by the
law in effect at the time the motion or other request was made.
