“The UCCJEA prescribes the powers and duties of the court in a child-custody proceeding involving [Michigan] and a proceeding or party outside of this state . . . [.]” Cheesman v Williams, 311 Mich App 147, 151; 874 NW2d 385 (2015) (citation and internal quotations omitted).
 …Michigan,… relies on the UCCJEA for interstate child custody jurisdiction questions: “The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (‘UCCJEA’) is codified 
This Court has recognized that a state has “jurisdiction substantially in conformity with [the UCCJEA][,]” MCL 722.1206(1), where jurisdiction complies with MCL 722.1201(1), or the identical statute from the foreign state. Fisher v Belcher, 269 Mich App 247, 255; 713 NW2d 6 (2005).
 The applicable statute governing jurisdiction … MCL 722.1201,2 which provides as follows: (1) Except as otherwise provided in [MCL 722.1204] a court of this state has jurisdiction to make an initial child-custody determination only in the following situations:
 (a) This state is the home state of the child on the date of the commencement of the proceeding, or was the home state of the child within 6 months before the commencement of the proceeding and the child is absent from this state but a parent or person acting as a parent continues to live in this state.
 (b) A court of another state does not have jurisdiction under subdivision (a), or a court of the home state of the child has declined to exercise jurisdiction on the ground that this state is the more appropriate forum under [MCL 722.1207] or [MCL 722.1208] and the court finds both of the following:
 (i) The child and the child’s parents, or the child and at least 1 parent or a person acting as a parent, have a significant connection with this state other than mere physical presence.
 (ii) Substantial evidence is available in this state concerning the child’s care, protection, training, and personal relationships.
 (c) All courts having jurisdiction under subdivision (a) or (b) have declined to exercise jurisdiction on the grounds that a court of this state is the more appropriate forum to determine the custody of the child under [MCL 722.1207] or [MCL 722.1208].
 (d) No court of another state would have jurisdiction under subdivision (a), (b), or (c).
“ The UCCJEA defines “home state” in relevant part as “the state in which a child lived with a parent or a person acting as a parent for at least 6 consecutive months immediately before the commencement of a child-custody proceeding.” MCL 722.1102(g) “
