– from Frances O. in Mukwonago, WI
My husband and I got a divorce in Michigan and the judge awarded placement and custody to me. My husband did make contact with the children for six years. During that time, my children and I moved around a bit. For the past four years, we have spent most of our time in Wisconsin.
One day, their father came for a visit. During his visit, he felt the children’s welfare was at stake. Their father then took the kids back with him to Delaware and demanded a change of custody under emergency jurisdiction. Can he do this? Is there a more convenient location to use for the hearing?
