My ex married a convicted felon and she has primary placement of our son. Anything I can do?

Two Rivers, WI |

Her new husband is a 4 time convicted felon who has habitual charges on his record for possession and possession with intent to sell multiple kinds of drugs including MDMA and Meth. My son is living in the same household as this man, and I feel extremely uncomfortable with this. Is there anything I can do to change this situation?

  1. You should try positing this question in the family law section to get answers to your question. Good luck.

  2. yes, file a motion to modify placement alleging a substantial change of circumstances
