1. The court of the other state determines it no longer has exclusive, continuing jurisdiction pursuant to NRS 125A.315 or that a court of this state would be a more convenient forum pursuant to NRS 125A.365; or

2. A court of this state or a court of the other state determines that the child, the child’s parents and any person acting as a parent do not presently reside in the other state.
