Legal Answers
123 Questions Answered
Q. Child Support: originally a 50/50 split between two kids. Now I have 85%. What is the best way to resolve this change
A: If the children have resided in Wisconsin for six months continuously, Wisconsin Law should control.
Q. Pregnant help
A: This would be subject to the law of Minnesota if the child reisdes in that state once born. To place the child for adoption, the Court would need to terminate the parental rights of both parents. The biological father should file a paternity action once the child is born and request that he have placement of the child if the mother does not want the child.
Q. Badgercare after divorce as a health insurance?
A: It is considered acceptable to rely on Badgercare benefits yourpremiums for group health insurance coverage exceed 10% of your net disposable income. The State, on its own, may file a Motion to require the father to provide coverage for the minor children so as to reduce the cost to the tax payers.
