  • Do I need to turn my daughter over at exchange time when neither of us know the person taking her?

    We have 50/50 custody. Mom took off to go to a music fest and today falls on her placement day. My daughter's mom wants me to drop off my daughter with a stranger to me and my daughter. I don't know anything about this person other than a first na...

    Tajara’s Answer

    If you deny the placement and she files a contempt motion, you would have to show the court that your behavior was reasonable. I don't think the Family Court Commissioners in Green Bay are going to find that you are required to turn your daughter over to a stranger. If mom comes back and asks for the remainder of the placement, then I think you have to give your daughter to the mom unless your paperwork says something different.

    On the other hand, you could go to the exchange and ask the stranger every question you want to know and if satisfied with the answers, honor mom's request.

    Tajara’s Answer

    If he terminated his rights, you are no longer a legal grandparent and would not have grandparent rights; however, you may be able to get visitation under the portion of the statute allowing visitation by someone with a parent like relationship with the child. You will definitely need an attorney to help you file the correct paperwork and likely try the case.

    Tajara’s Answer

    if the doctors don't say you are unable to work, and as such you aren't eligible for FMLA, your employer doesn't have to go beyond without a doctors excuse. Discuss this with an employment lawyer and get a new doctor to review your condition.

    Tajara’s Answer

    Unless the way he treats you is based on a protected class (race, religion, gender or age), he can legally do so. If it is a big company you could discuss it with HR and see if they have a solution; however, the best solution for you maybe to find a new job.
