I suggest you seek counsel locally. Try the free clinic at the Milwaukee County Courthouse. Other wise Central Legal, or Legal Aids of Wisconsin.
If both parents are 50/50 and unemployed, then child support will be based on the unemployment (if any). You will need to use the shared placement calculator program to figure out the support.
But be advised that the support order stays the same $$$ until someone files a motion to modify child support with the court. You do not want to be in arrears so do so soon.See question
My husband has a drinking problem that has just gotten worse over the last year. He refuses to get help and I don't want to be responsible for any legal trouble he may get in. I can't play the role I've played this last year of mother, wife, sol...
Legal separation will do that, assuming the settlement agreement or court order includes the proper wording. The process to obtain a legal separation is exactly the same as to obtain a divorce.
The only benefit of a legal separation over a divorce is possibly the continuation of health insurance by the spouse.
So, why would you choose to have a legal separation rather than just divorcing them?See question
I have sole custody of my son. Ex has supervised visitations which he rarely uses. I have the health insurance and pay for daycare/school and extracurricular activities. My ex was making much more than last reported before he was laid off in April...
If there is no review then it will remain at the last $$$ amount. That might not be a bad thing.
If the court sides with ex, then the fact that he just got out of jail and has not job may be a lot lower than what was last ordered.
Remember though he can go back to court to change support simply by filing a motion to do so.
Assuming you review is optional, you will have to ask yourself if it is worth the trouble given whatever the last ordered amount was.
Sooner or later the arrearages catch up with the ex, and until then he is still on the meter.See question
She can't be trusted at all to be fair or do the right thing - how can he find good representation without money up front?

My wife and I are getting divorced. Her and I have a son together, and we both have a child from a previous marriage. Where as I have paid child support for my daughter, her ex husband has not paid anything for their son. So in the "I've paid ha...
The easy and complete answer is DCF150. Search for "WI DCF150" and review it. It covers multiple children from multiple marriages. Otherwise an attorney would need far more information than you have provided.
Start with DCF150, and come back if that doesn't do it for you.See question
As long as the other party gives at least two weeks in advance notice. F that vacation time fell of the other parties weekend is it legal to take that vacation as long as there was two weeks advance notice?
Look for a sentence that says which comes first Vacation, Holiday, hen placement.
Most MSAs have sentence(s) that make such a order of precedence.
my mortgage company wants me to do an assumption loan. I am retired and am afraid that I will be denied
OK... You have to read the fine print of the Judgment of Divorce and Marital Settlement agreement. If it just says transfer, then you can quit claim the property with your ex's signature done in front of a notary. Generally the register of deeds will require the document to be drafted by an attorney. Call the county register of deeds to see if they do, and get instructions on how to file a quit claim deed if they do not. Either way DO THAT FIRST.
Once it is transferred.
If the MSA says to refinance then look into whether the loan can have ex's name removed. ANY federal bank will refuse. Some State Banks might allow it. By state banks I mean Credit unions or mortgage companies. Usually they don't like letting people off the hook, at their own risk.
That means you would have to refinance the mortgage. But if you can't the court is not likely to do anything about it. You can't generally be held in contempt if you are doing the best you can. If you have tried several banks and they simply won't do it, then oh well.
If the MSA was written properly, there will be recourses for ex to reclaim the property. That is the worst that can happen.
Some have provisions to get maintenance to cover any short falls. BUT as long as you pay the mortgage that won't happen.
I hope that helps.See question

No it would be called VOLUNTARY ACT. You knew what the employer wanted and chose not to give it to him. Example I had my client had a husband that was fired for sexual harassment. Voluntary act. Was then discharged from two other jobs. Because the court already felt he was shirking they also went voluntary on those. He was always required to pay the max.
I would suggest that you have an attorney. Someone that will say you are trying, which is more believe-able than you saying it yourself.See question
