If you are a divorced parent who wants to move with your children to a different home, there are certain legal steps you must take.

There were several updates to the law in 2018 that changed some of the relocation requirements and streamlined the legal process to make it easier for both parents.
When it comes to jailtime and child support in Wisconsin, there are two main things to keep in mind.
