Florida Dept. of HRS v. Breeden (Kansas 1995)

Extends the Ross requirement to incoming interstate requests and requires that the best interest hearing must be conducted in the child’s home state. Where a K.S.A. 38-1115(b) paternity proceeding is initiated through an interstate support enforcement mechanism and the child resides in another state, the trial court should await a determination from the court of the initiating state that a blood test establishing paternity is in the best interests of the child before making its determination of paternity.
