Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.Wisconsin continues to have jurisdiction over this matter since they are the ones who put the decree in place. For Wisconsin to no longer have jurisdiction, you would have to file in South Dakota and file for a change of venue. The other parent would be able to contest the petition. So far, however, if the venue was not change, Wisconsin by virtue of placing the decree in place does have the right to control relocation and consequently tell you whether or not you can move. It would not be SD courts unless you already removed the case over under their jurisdiction.Good luck.
