I’m not aware of any state fill-in-the-blank forms specific to grandparents visitation cases. You could try using the generic motions to modify custody and placement forms, but a well-seasoned attorney might be your best bet.
SINCE HE IS IN PROTECTIVE PLACEMENT that according to the statute he is to be taken care of by the county and or state funding. In the least restrictive place.

Both Wisconsin law and federal law provide a right for a person being cared for due to a disability to be given the least restrictive placement. Sometimes court battles arise because that person, the person's guardian or family and the state disagree as to what placement is required. If you are...Read more »
You can file the paternity action either in Jackson County or Trempealeau County. I would think that the better option in this case though would be to file in Jackson County since the I assume the child is living with the other parent in that county.
We had joint placement but my ex didn't have day care for him so he said I had to take him for the summer. Now that schools in place he wants him every other week again and I think he's doing much better full time with me. He refuses to pay anything more.
If you want to receive child support, you would need a court order in place to be able to enforce it. In most cases, child support will follow a placement order so you will probably want to request an order for primary placement and then request the court to calculate child support for that as...Read more »
You are misinformed about MN law. In MOST states (and MN and WI are in that crowd) IF children inherit without a will, ALL children inherit equally. There are situations where children will NOT inherit without a will in MN (For example, if there is a surviving spouse who is also the parent of the...Read more »
It depends on why you want to reopen the case. If you are trying to make a change to the current child support order, you would probably want to file a modification motion. However, if you are trying to notify the court that the paying party is not paying their support obligations then you are...Read more »
The only required notice you have to give to your husband is once you actually file the petition for divorce. You begin the process by filling out a summons and petition for divorce. In order to move forward with the divorce, your husband needs to be served with the summons and petition which would...Read more »
If I am understanding your question correctly, the answer would be that there is no issue with this. If your in the middle of divorce proceedings, for instance, feel free to date as you please. You will not be able to remarry during the divorce process as well as for a period of 6 months after the...Read more »
If there is a current court order in place that gives you specific visitation times and he is withholding that placement from you, you need to file an Enforcement of Physical Placement motion with the court of jurisdiction. However, if the court order states your placement as "reasonable times upon...Read more »
A presentence investigation could reveal facts about the defendant that normally would not get before the judge prior to sentencing. It often will increase fairness in the system, but not always. The defendant may have his/her own psi done by the defenses choice. It really gives the judge more...Read more »
When my ex went to prison I suspended the child support order I had against him for our two children. 8 years later he is out of prison and hasn't offered any help and now I find out he has child support taken out of his wages for another child he had. I assume that she is receiving 17%. My... Read more »
For two children, the flat rate percentage standard in Wisconsin is 25% of the paying parent's gross income. There are a number of different reasons one could argue for the court to deviate from this percentage standard if the court finds that the use of the percentage is unfair to the child or to...Read more »
It depends on if this agreement on placement was part of the initial divorce proceeding. In other words, if you incorporated this agreement in writing as part of the divorce proceedings and the court accepted this, then it is a court order and he is obliged to follow it. However, if for some reason...Read more »
I have an audio recording of a private conversation with my father, shortly before his passing several years ago. This conversation contains content that may be embarrassing to me. Another family member would like to compel me to share that recording and is threatening to take legal action. Can... Read more »
Maybe. If the recording concerns the estate, it is probably discoverable. If not, then probably not. You can have the judge review the recording in camera (that means outside the presence of the parties to the case). That will solve the embarrassment concerns you have.
