§ 132. Support by mother. 1. If a mother of a child born out of wedlock be possessed of property and shall fail to support e and educate her child, the court having jurisdiction, on the ap

plication of the guardian or next friend of the child or, if the child shall be chargeable or likely to become chargeable, of the officers mentioned in section one hundred and twenty-two, may examine into the matter and after a hearing may make an order charging the mother with the payment of money weekly or other

wise for the support and education of the child. 11

2. The court may require the mother to give security, by bond, with sufficient sureties approved by the court, for the payment of the order. In default of such security, when required, the court may commit her to jail, or put her on probation. At any + time within one year she may be discharged from jail, but her liability to pay the judgment shall not be thereby affected.

3. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to relieve the father from liability for support and education of the child in accordance with the provisions of this article.

§ 133. False declaration of identity. The making of a false complaint as to the identity of the father, or the aiding or abetting therein, is punishable as for perjury.

§ 134. Probation. Upon a failure to give security as provided in section one hundred and twenty-nine or section one hundred and thirty-two, the court, instead of imposing sentence or of committing the father or mother to jail, or as condition of his or

her release from jail, may place him or her on probation, upon 31

such terms as to payment of support to or on behalf of the mother or child, and as to personal reports, as the court may direct. Upon violation of the terms imposed, the court may proceed to impose the sentence and commit or recommit to jail in accordance with the sentence.

§ 135. Jurisdiction. Jurisdiction over proceedings to compel support is vested in the courts enumerated in section one hundred and twenty-two, paragraph three. It is not a bar to the jurisdiction of the court that the complaining mother or child resides in another county or state, if the defendant be a resident of this state.

§ 136. Appeals. An appeal in all cases may be taken from any final order or judgment of any court having jurisdiction of filiation proceedings, as provided for in this article, to the appellate division of the supreme court of the respective department within thirty days after the entry of said order or judg. ment. But a defendant who has executed an undertaking to obey an order of filiation, as provided in section one hundred and twenty-nine, shall not appeal from any other part of said order than that which fixes the sum to be paid weekly or otherwise. No appeal, however, shall affect the security required to be given pursuant to section one hundred and twenty-nine. If any such appeal shall be taken by a guardian ad litem, appointed for the child by the court, the court may in its discretion grant an order to audit and may allow payment, for the actual disbursements made by the said guardian ad litem for printing the papers neeessary for taking the appeal. In appeals in cases of filiation, a printed case on appeal or a printed brief shall not be required. When allowed by the judge and duly audited, said disbursements shall become a county charge and shall be paid by the county.

§ 137. Prosecuting official. It shall be the duty of the county attorney, or the attorney designated by the board of supervisors, or the corporation counsel of a city, in the county, city or town in which the complaint is made to prosecute either in person or by an assistant all cases relating to children born out of wedlock where the complainant is a poor law official.

§ 138. General provisions. In all records, certificates or other papers hereafter made or executed, other than birth records and certificates or records of judicial proceedings in which the ques. tion of birth out of wedlock is at issue, requiring a declaration by or notice to the mother of a child born out of wedlock or otherwise requiring a reference to the relation of a mother to such a child, it shall be sufficient for all purposes to refer to the mother as the parent having the sole custody of the child, and no explicit reference shall be made to illegitimacy.

§ 139. Construction. All provisions of the penal law or of the code of criminal procedure or other statutes inconsistent with or repugnant to the provisions of this article shall be considered inapplicable to the cases arising under this article.
