  • How old does a child have to be to decide who they want to live with in WI?

    Mother has custody and denies visitation to father. Daughter wants to live with father

    Tajara’s Answer

    Dad needs to fill a motion to either enforce placement or modify placement. The older a child gets the more the court might consider their wishes but they don't get to chose until 18. Until then the best interest of the child prevails.

    Tajara’s Answer

    your agent is likely to extend your probation. If you would have asked earlier, I would have said go find someplace to spend a long day volunteering and get it done! 20 hours in a year is not much!

    Are you in the process of divorce? Look at your temporary order paperwork. Lacking an order, most of the time, filing married together gets the best refund. Have a CPA do it both ways and see which gets the best results. I

    Tajara’s Answer

    yes, you are wrong. Raises are at the discretion of an employer. They have no reason to give you one when you already put in your notice. If there was some discriminatory reason there might be a claim (race, sex ,age, etc) but clearly here it is because you quit

  • How is insurance premium divided between 2 blended families with 5 kids?

    Tajara’s Answer

    first, you take the difference between the single plan and the family plan. Then it varies how courts handle it. At most you would pay 1/2 the difference between the single and family plan (or in this case $15/week). Some courts will say that each additional person should get a portion...so the $30 would be divided by 6 additional people. Then you would pay 1/2 the cost of your husband's children-or $5/week.
