The statute says 150miles or out of state. So, you do not have to ask the courts permission if it is within 150miles and within the state.
BUT... if it interferes with his placement, then sometimes it is just better to grab the court by the gavel and let everyone know what you are intending. Better than having a placement battle later over an optional move (assuming it is otional.
Crime, NO. Contempt, maybe. Bad judgment, certainly.
Joint custody has nothing to do with placement. What is the placement arrangement?
Child support is for the child but goes to the custodian of the child, and the case states that if it improves the quality of life of the household, that is good enough. The court is not going to try to figure out what mom is doing with the money, unless she has a $500/day drug habit. That path will not pan out for you.
You are far better filing...
The statutes do allow for holding the child back is they are in physical or mental danger, but it would be best to file for an emergency hearing, or better yet file for a restraining order for the adult that did do what was said.
You will need more than a feeling, you will also need a very good lawyer to avoid being held in contempt for failure to provide placement.
Talk to a local attorney before acting on this.
substitution is limited to the initial notice of the judge assigned to a case. So, if you are in a county with just one judge, and you miss your chance, you miss it forever.
Just as if you use you one substitution and later you want to substitute again, you can't.
As for whether to submit a motion to the commissioner or the judge, most counties have rules that control that issue. The exception is if you are already in front of a judge on one motion, then filing anything else is in...
The answer depends on who you ask.
The IRS only cares about form 8332. Without it, one does get in trouble with the IRS.
The court only cares about its order. So, for them to care otherwise, you have to go back to court.
The other parent will keep doing what the court order says because they have the court on their side.
So, that seems to say that the other parents will get them until the court orders otherwise.
It depends on what paperwork you are talking about. MSA ? or Judgment for Divorce, or Divorce filing for the WI State Registrar ?
Judgment for Divorce your attorney can file, just as easy. Registrar paperwork too.
If the MSA has not been filed even though signed that is a bigger problem.
You can file a Motion for Contempt for failure to file.
If you draft it and send it to her attorney they will likely do the right thing and act on it.
Retainers are funds the attorney works against and are held in trust. They bill at an hourly rate. If the hourly billing is less than what is held in trust the balance is returned to the client upon termination or withdrawal.
Some attorneys do not like to have less in retainer than the whole case will take, others will set their retainer on a normal 45-60 days billing cycle, and ask for more if necessary. The good news there is that the initial retainer is lower but the badnews is that...
If you were granted the right to change your name in your last divorce decree, then you can do it at any time just give the judgment of divorce to whoever controls the document you want to change your name on (i.e. Dept of Motor Vehicles).
If you were not then you have to file for a name change with the clerk of court in the county you live in.
After you hire counsel, he will likely contact the DA and see if the no contact can be adjusted to deal with the housing problem. Previos counsel is correct that family court will generate a temporary order if you have a divorce pending, but if not then you need to focus where the order was generated that is causing the problem.
Meanwhile you probably need to protect the money in any account you have money in. Talk to your attorney first thing about that before it is too late to do so.
You do not have an obligation to have him involved in your life, or the birthing. You have a right to your privacy and the right to not be harassed. You might start by calling the police, and ask for a desk officer. Describe to him what is going on and ask him what they might do for you. My guess is they will call him and ask him to leave you alone.
In the meantime, you should consider seeking a free consultation with a local attorney. If the police don't get him to leave you...
