Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
I thank you for the link for the form. Already did that - just once I wish someone would think about Morgan. Everyone has thought about politics but never about Morgan. I don't think I ever want to hear states declare that their children are their priority. We've been told that Morgan can't say no to her dad because per Wisconsin law she has no rights until she's 18. Well all for children being able to stand up for themselves. Someone should fight for children and their rights. So with all due respect, your answer was ineffective.
You're right that the child has no choice until adulthood. It is usually the best thing for the child for the law to be this way - but not always!
I disagree that my answer was "ineffective". It is the way the law is and I can't change that. I told you the truth, but maybe not what you wanted to hear.
