01-1744 In Re the Paternity of R.D.M.: State, et al. v. William L.G.

This is a paternity action. The State of Wisconsin, acting on behalf of the Washington County Child Support Agency, appeals from a circuit court order determining that the past support obligation of William L.G., the father of the child, is to be measured from the day after this action was commenced pursuant to the current Wis. Stat. sec. 767.51(4) (1999-2000). The State contends that William’s past support obligation should be measured from the date of the birth of the child pursuant to the former version of the statute, which was in effect at the time this action was commenced. We agree with the State.

We reverse the order and remand for further proceedings.
