Custody

Please consider getting help from a legal organization in your area before proceeding with court action regarding custody issues. To find help, please go to the WI Places that Help page. In our general Custody page, we have information about custody that is not specific to any state. The page includes a section about how to try to transfer your custody case to a new state where you are living so that you can modify the custody order from your new state.
