The State of Illinois ("State"), acting on behalf of Sherry Lowery ("Mother"), brought an action against Jonathan Nelson ("Nelson") under the Uniform Reciprocal Enforcement of Support Act, Â§Â§ 454.010-.360 RSMo 1994, ("URESA"), alleging that Nelson was the father of Mothers minor child, J.N. ("Child") and seeking support for Child from Nelson. The action was transferred to Missouri, where Nelson resides, as responding state. Nelson filed a motion to dismiss alleging that Mother failed to comply with the pleading requirements of the Uniform Parentage Act, Â§ 210.817-.852 ("UPA") and, specifically, that Mother had failed to join Child as a necessary party to the action as required by Â§ 210.830. The trial Judge ("Respondent") agreed with Nelson. Relators filed this original proceeding in prohibition seeking to prevent Respondent from ordering the addition of the minor child as a party to the underlying URESA action and from dismissing their petition should they fail to do so or otherwise fail to conform the petition to the requirements of the UPA which have been specifically incorporated into URESA. We order that our preliminary writ heretofore issued now be made permanent.
