The case of the day is Gyger v. Clement (N.C. 2020). The mother and the father were unmarried and had had a romantic relationship in North Carolina. They had two children, both born in Switzerland. In 2007, the mother brought an action in a Swiss court to establish paternity, and for child support. The Swiss court entered a default judgment against the father, and the Swiss central authority registered the Swiss order with the North Carolina Office of Child Support and Enforcement. The father sought to vacate the registered order on the grounds that the father had not been served in the Swiss proceedings. The mother sought relief and submitted an affidavit, but the court denied the motion. I assume that if the court had credited the mother’s affidavit, she would have prevailed, but the court excluded the affidavit from evidence because it had not been sworn before a notary. The mother appealed, and the intermediate appellate court affirmed. The mother then sought review in the North Carolina Supreme Court.
