I agree with the other posters. The situation you describe with a virtually homeless parents is very concerning. I suggest that you contact a child custody lawyer to discuss the next step. You may need a formal court order.See question
My ex-fiance has kept our son from me and refused visitation and he is now 15. I have requested mediation through my county Family Court Commissioner and was told that the mother needs to make him see me.....this isn't happening.
I gather from your comments that this situation has been happening for a long time. If you have a court order granting specific visitation, you can file a motion to enforce it. You may also want to consider filing a motion to change the visitation schedule and frequency. Either way, I recommend that you contact a child custody lawyer to help you.See question

Reopening a divorce case is not particularly easy, even on the facts you list. However, you may be able to request "clarification" or some revisions to the judgment if some issues were not addressed. Contempt may be an option as well, depending on the facts and the wording of your judgment. Particularly if you are having trouble with a home sale (or lack of) that is affecting your credit. I suggest that you contact a divorce lawyer to discuss this in more detail.See question
We have helped raise him since birth, taking him every other weekend, purchasing things, etc.. We are anticipating some issues but would like to know what the options are if there comes to be any? If they go for any custody or visitation do we hav...
I am not clear what type of "placement" you have. If you have guardianship, you would not be required to provide contact with other grandparents. If you have only "visitation" that is sometimes provided to grandparents, you would not likely have much authority to make that decision. The parents likely retain that authority. I suggest that you consult with a child custody lawyer about your specific order and rights.See question
we agreed to 50/50 custody and placement and no child support, however since then I have been paying about 98% of the cost to support them financially (school fees, equipment and clothing for sports, school supplies, phone bills, doctor bills, etc)
Yes. Child support can never be permanently waived. If the other parent is not paying a fair portion of the expenses, you should be able to request support. Assuming the other parent's income is higher than yours.See question
And our custody agreement has a specific dollar amount that I have to pay for health insurance, and my ex switched the insurance, do I have to make up that cost to her before it is reflected in the court order?
I suggest that you review the specific language in your court order. Medical premiums are usually covered under child support, while uninsured medical costs (copay, etc) may be addressed separately.See question
Got pregnant with daughter, got married, and moved to Wisconsin about 1 year ago. Want to move with daughter back to Georgia, but husband refuses. Can I move? How ugly will this get?
I agree with the other posters. However, I recommend that you consult with a child custody lawyer first to ensure you prepare properly for leaving the state and establishing residence in your new state. That will be an important point if your husband files for divorce in Wisconsin.See question
My ex wife and I have 50/50 custody on all decisions, including education. I found out the other day that she pulled my kids out of school so that she could send them to stay with her family and she could go on vacation. She did not ask me or le...
You can file a contempt motion. I suggest that you speak with a child custody lawyer to review your custody order and discuss whether there are any other issues that would support a change in custody decision making.See question
My spouse, myself, and our children lived in Wisconsin for four years. 10 weeks ago we relocated to Oklahoma for what I thought was my spouse's new job. Little did I know he was in an affair with someone in OK and moved us here to be closer to he...
I strongly advise you to consult with an experienced divorce lawyer. Jurisdictional questions can be complicated, and depend heavily on the facts of the case. It is not really possible to give a realistic answer without an in-depth consultation. You have not been in OK very long, so you may still be able to proceed in WI, but your strategy should be carefully planned. Your consultation should occur as soon as possible while there is a chance you could proceed in WI.See question
Just had a hearing and the father won some paternity. Should I have an attorney at my court ordered mediation with me.
In Dane County, attorneys do not attend mediation. However, I advise you to consult with an attorney before the mediation so you are aware of the possible outcomes and ensure you can participate effectively. Your attorney can also review any agreement you make.See question
