State ex rel. N.R.Z. v. G.L.C.


152 Wis. 2d 97, 447 N.W.2d 533 (1989)


Where child was conceived in Florida, and father’s only contact with Wisconsin was one visit where he merely called the mother, Wisconsin did not have personal jurisdiction under the long arm statute. Due process requires certain minimal contacts with the state. Fact that the child lives in Wisconsin is not sufficient, nor is failure to pay support until father is found liable for support.
