I'm so sorry to hear about the difficulties you and your husband have been dealing with. Let me see what I can do to help.


I would suggest that your troubles may be about to end. When an out-of-state warrant is served, the person typically waives extradition, I assume your husband has waived extradition. If so, Wisconsin only has so much time to pick him up, this is typically limited to 90 days, which, as I understand it, is about to come up for your husband.


October 2 is, of course, just 2 days away. I would sugges that, at that time, either Wisconsin will have made arrangements to pick him up for extradition or he will be released by Illinois.
