If you face interstate custody issues, contact Kowalski, Wilson & Vang, LLC. We have noticed an increase in custody disputes between parents that reside in different states. This is most likely due to the fact that families are more mobile, and that parents are often moving for employment.
The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act is the source of law that applies to Wisconsin custody disputes. The UCCJEA is designed for the prevention of a parent taking a child to another state and filing a custody action in that state.
