Section 30-3A-201Bases for jurisdiction over nonresident.

In a proceeding to establish, enforce, or modify a support order or to determine parentage, a court of this state may exercise personal jurisdiction over a nonresident individual or the individual's guardian or conservator if:



(1) the individual is personally served with summons and complaint within this state;



(2) the individual submits to the jurisdiction of this state by consent, by entering a general appearance, or by filing a responsive document having the effect of waiving any contest to personal jurisdiction;



(3) the individual resided with the child in this state;



(4) the individual resided in this state and provided prenatal expenses or support for the child;



(5) the child resides in this state as a result of the acts or directives of the individual;



(6) the individual engaged in sexual intercourse in this state and the child may have been conceived by that act of intercourse;



(7) the individual asserted parentage in the putative father registry as provided in Section 26-10C-1, which is maintained in this state by the Department of Human Resources; or



(8) there is any other basis consistent with the constitutions of this state and the United States for the exercise of personal jurisdiction.
