What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Wisconsin
I have 3 children who have lived with their dad since 1999. The youngest is just about 12 (January). They all want to live with me now. Without getting into their story, I guess I just want to know if it IS their decision here in Wisconsin and how do I go about doing this? The oldest will be 15, one is 13 and as I said, the youngest will be 12. I heard it was a fairly simple process that won't stress out the kids. They feel guilty enough about wanting to come here. And does the story of WHY make a big difference? There is no abuse, they are just very unhappy where they are. And SHOULD I get a lawyer?
