CASE ANNOTATIONS

1. Determination of a child's home state is an objective question; the UCCJEA's language "state in which a child lived" incorporates physical presence and does not suggest any concepts of legal residence, which is governed by an intention to stay or to return to a location. In re A.W., 60 Kan. App. 2d 296, 304, 493 P.3d 298 (2021).
