– from Jimmy K. in Jackson, WI

Question Details:

My wife is looking to establish child support as she lost part of her income. She plans on having a state district attorney represent her. I believe she can still afford an attorney. Is this allowed?

Family Law Attorney Response:

Thank you for your question.

As decided in Jeske v. Jeske 138 Wis.2d 268, 405 N.W.2d 757 (Ct. App. 1987), the state may represent any individual in any action to establish paternity or to establish or enforce a support or maintenance obligation.

If you have any more questions, give me a call.
