Whether it is a move to accept a new job, to be closer to extended family, or simply for a change of scenery, relocating with a child can be difficult. Under Wisconsin divorce law, there are certain rules a parent must follow when he or she wishes to move with his or her child.

Divorce is often extremely contentious. When children become involved in the scope of topics parents fight about, it is unfair to the child. In some divorces, child custody is a very heated matter that can be extremely difficult to reach an agreement regarding legal custody, physical custody, and a parenting plan.
