– from Rose F. in Hartland, WI
As a part of the final divorce judgment, the court agreed to a stipulation that my husband would receive custody, and I would pay support, but with reasonable visitation rights. I work a lot, so I am not able to see the kids as much as I would like. My husband has recently informed me that in light of my not exercising my reasonable rights for visitation, he would be petitioning for an increase of support. I asked him on what grounds he would be making this petition. He said he is basing the petition on a substantial change of circumstance. Is a failure to exercise visitation considered a substantial change in circumstance?
