STINSON v. IOWA DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES.
68889.
BENHAM, Judge.
Child support. DeKalb Superior Court. Before Judge Coursey.
Acting under the auspices of the Uniform Reciprocal Enforcement of Support Act (URESA) (OCGA 19-11-40 et seq.), appellee sought reimbursement and child support from appellant, a resident of DeKalb County. See OCGA 19-11-55 (a); Iowa Code Ann. 252A.6 (3). Appellant admitted that he had had sexual intercourse with the child's mother nine months prior to the child's birth and acknowledged that he had previously stipulated to paternity in Iowa courts. In the DeKalb County proceeding, however, he denied paternity of the child and asked that blood tests be conducted. Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) tests were conducted on blood samples from appellant, the child, and the child's mother, and the test results indicated a 99.9% probability that appellant had fathered the child. The trial court found appellant to be the child's father and ordered him to make monthly child support payments to the DeKalb County Adult Probation Office. See OCGA 19-11-65 (2). On appeal, appellant continues to contest the court's finding of paternity.
The trial court was authorized to adjudicate the paternity issue raised by appellant. OCGA 19-11-66. Inasmuch as the record contained evidence which supports the trial court's finding of fact, we will affirm that decision. See Herman v. Boyer, 154 Ga. App. 617 (1) (269 SE2d 107) (1980).
Robert E. Wilson, District Attorney, Robert E. Statham, Assistant District Attorney, for appellee.
James Alan Stinson, pro se.
DECIDED NOVEMBER 16, 1984.
