In case where mother was receiving AFDC, but father was living with her and child and supported child:  (1) Court has discretion to credit the putative father for support prior to adjudication of paternity  (2)  “Manifest injustice” test under Schultz v. Ystad does not apply  (3)  It would be inequitable to require retroactive payments to a time father was already support the child.
