State of Louisiana ex rel. Eaton v. Leis

Cite

120 Wis. 2d 271, 354 N.W.2d 209 (WI Ct. App., 1984)

Summary

Wisconsin resident may be required to pay support under URESA where he had legal custody, but not physical custody, even if mother may have removed children in violation of a court order. Support obligation is not affected by the misconduct of the custodial parent. Even children “stolen” by a noncustodial parent need food, clothing and shelter.
