– from Michelle N. in Shorewood, WI
My wife and I were divorced in another state. She was awarded custody of our three children and I was ordered to pay support. My wife moved with the children to Wisconsin and has lived there for almost three years. I visit them about three or four times a year. Now, she has informed me that she is petitioning the court in Wisconsin for an increase in support. Can Wisconsin order me to appear in court there? Does Wisconsin have jurisdiction over a non-resident?
