You should contact a probate lawyer who practices in or near the city/county your father-in-law passed. Discuss in detail your situation and see what said lawyer advises. It is worth the cost of a consultation to get information. Good luck.

If you are divorced in the State of Texas, the law of that State will apply. That would mean that the waiting period to remarry would be controlled by the laws of that State, not Wisconsin.

Whether you can terminate your parental rights is complicated. First, who has your child? Is it the father? Has he remarried? If so, he would need to be the one to petition for the termination of parental rights and a step-parent adoption. Someone needs to be able to step into your shoes as the... Read more »

No. That is a property division that took place for assets after your marriage. Child support she would be paid from the recent marriage would be for the benefit of the children from that marriage.

At mediation I said every other Saturday but I haven’t signed the papers yet. Can I not sign them and just go to court? Also I need a lawyer and I have to write an answer to chapter 802 Wisconsin statute. Don’t know how.
answered on Jun 13, 2022
A mediated agreement is not an Order of the Court until you have signed a Stipulation and it has been filed with the Court. Because of new grandparent visitation case law, grandparent visitation is not an automatic right. This is why you should consult with an experienced family law attorney.
