My sons father has another girlfriend that is currently pregnant. He lives 2.5 hours away from our son in Illinois. I live in Wisconsin. We settled out of court on joint legal custody with myself having primary physical custody. I would like full ...
I agree with previous counsel. You have a better chance of being elected Governor than to get sole legal custody without a stipulation or domestic violence (which is statutory).
You having primary placement is also the best you can get because the state wants both parents in the child's life. So they have historically even given dad placement (supervised) when he molested his own children. Needless to say highly not likely to occur.See question

You cannot get a restraining order for a 24yr old child. The courts expect them to do this on their own. But even if you could it does not sound like there are grounds for one here.

FYI... You would be able to add the conditions to her bail, bond or probation. Those efforts would be time better spent.See question
Ex and 2 teenage daughters live in another state. The ex blocked me from her cell and text so she doesnt have to answer questions. She is out drinking every weekend or going on 3 day vacations. She leaves my girls with their friends and they the...
If your daughters have been living out of state for more than 6 months then Wisconsin may not have subject matter jurisdiction under the UCCJEA. Unfortunately, you are likely going to have to talk to an attorney that knows the UCCJEA and has done jurisdictional challenges. If you do know, then you might be filing in the wrong state court. Jurisdiction is confusing and hard to handle on your own.See question
The newspaper in Raleigh where my husbands last known address is is trying to help keep my cost for publication down but she doesn't want to cut the WI verbiage down if it will hurt me later.
I generally use the statutes in both states to determine the requirements. This is NOT a place where you want to short cut for cost. The Courts are always looking for a good reason to refuse publication service. So, DO NOT short cut the requirements.
ProBono service from Community Justice Inc and Legal Action (both of Madison) are available here in Rock County. You might want to call them if your income is limited. Free or reduced fees are a good thing.See question
I have two jobs and want to include both names/addresses on my FA-4139V form. How should I do that? Should I use one form and put a slash (e.g. Subway/McDonalds) for all fields, or should I duplicate page 1 section 2 with each employer's information?
Put totals in the form and say "See Attachment". Then have a separate sheet that lists all the numbers and their totals.See question

Absolute. The GAL should always include new information they receive in their determination. Contact the GAL often to make sure you are providing the right info when they need it.See question
My child's father was ordered to pay $500 a month for child support. he became very bitter and angry he went back down to the courts and filed a hearing denovo to reduce it to $65 a week. Can this happen? I thought he has to show why he feels the ...
I suggest you research "Voluntary Action" as it relates to child support income calculations. If a parent has done anything to change his position then they will generally hold him to his highest income numbers.See question
The father of my unborn child currently has 3 other kids and decided to move back to their home state as he was unable to stabilize a life here and had no insurance on his kids along with aa lot of other things. I am financially stable and have m...
I add to his explanation that you should contact your county's child support enforcement agency to apply for their help in getting child support. Out of state can be a problem especially for an individual. They will usually want your income information, but likely their services will be free.
You may need an attorney to handle the custody and placement issues if BioDad actually shows up at these hearings.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?
It is important to know if this was a settlement agreement or a order of the court.
Settlement agreements are FAR HARDER to get around than ORDERs because the Court will usually revisit the reasons for an Order of the Court, they will rarely look behind the reason the parties signed a settlement agreement.
So, if things have changed and this was a trial and order of the Court file a motion to modify.
The basis for health insurance is less than 5% of Gross income or income of 150% of Federal Poverty Guidelines. If it is greater than those things the payor will get credit. So, if dad pays Full CS and he pays Health Insurance he will usually get a credit on child support. If you are paying FULL child support and Mom pays health insurance then it should be included in the support. Shared placement often breaks it out.
If it is a settlement agreement then you need to read the wording closely, and find the catch to file a motion. That will likely take an attorney to pull it off. Be very careful to do these because if the Court turns you down, they may not be willing to rehear these issues later when you could do so.See question
