– from Amanda D. in Delafield, WI

Question Details:

I may be filing a paternity case and would like to know what the courts consider a period of paternity?

Family Law Attorney Response:

Thank you for you child support question.

As discussed in State ex rel. J.A.S. v. M.E.S. 142 Wis.2d 300, 418 N.W.2d32 (Ct. App. 1987), when the child is full term, the conception of the child shall be presumed to have occurred within a span of time extending from 240 days to 300 days before the date of its birth, unless competent evidence to the contrary is presented to the court.

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

Trisha Festerling, J.D.
