I don't mind the work, but I'm willing to bet before interviewing and researching it that the non-custodial spouse is in a country that is a signatory of the Hague Convention. You need a lawyer in the jurisdiction where the custodial parent and the children live. The child support formula of that...Read more »
Yes, assuming your child support was based on an income calculation that deducted support paid to the child from a previous relationship. However, the $50 amount suggests that the payor's income is very low, so adding that previous support amount back into his/her income may not bring the amount...Read more »
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 »
Since both of you are in agreement with regard to the changing placement and child support, you can file a stipulation with the court highlighting the changes you wish to make.

It states that I am to have contact with our 3 children and I have not had contact with them since the end of January, and before that it was few and very far between. I'm... Read more »
As you say he is your ex-husband, I am assuming you have already gotten the final decree of divorce. If that is the case, I am not sure why there would be a temporary since that would have been valid only during the interim of the divorce process.

So if I understand your question correctly, you are describing a situation where you are married to a woman who has a child with another man from a past relationship. If that is the case, you technically do not have any rights to that child unless you adopted the child following a termination of...Read more »
Considering that it doesn't sound like there are any existing court orders regarding placement and custody, it seems to me that you would be best off petitioning the court in Dane County for custody and placement orders. Without any existing orders in place, you would most likely have to open an...Read more »
