My question involves paternity law for the State of: Wisconsin and New York
I've posted on here once before, and am hoping someone will have some advice.
My son was born while I was living in South Korea. He is now 14 months old. His father is an American citizen who was also living in SK (where my son was conceived). He is a civilian.
We now live in WI. I managed to find where my son's father was working in South Korea before leaving there; however, CSE informed me that because SK has no agreements with the US, they cannot have him served there.
At this point, I am unsure where he is exactly, but I do have his SSN and Passport No.
He is from NY state. I was told by CSE that NY would have jurisdiction. Is this true?
I did some research and came upon in WI Legal Code "Summons by Publication." I'm wondering if it would be possible to have him summoned in this manner (or in another I am unaware of) despite not having a precise current address.
**For the record, he has always known about my pregnancy/son's existence and has not once shown any interest in my son. I am saddened by this beyond belief, but I feel that in the least he owes my son his financial support.
