Jurisdiction Appeal
      07/22/11 08:00 AM

I recently lost a jurisdictional dispute between the states of florida and wisconsin. I am going to attempt an appeal.
The first issue I am raising:
The wisconsin court ruled they had "exclusive continuing jurisdiction" because the court said the case began in wisconsin. In researching the UCCJEA of wisconsin exclusive continuing jurisdcition only happens when a court of the state makes an order regarding a custody proceeding.......The only order the ex and i got ever was "Order and stipulation for setting birth expenses" included in that order it said 50/50 custody and placement is awarded to the parents jointly.....No specific times given and the ex and i never went to a hearing. we signed that order and a paternity affidavit....does that constitute a custody proceeding/determination by this definition?

(3) “Child custody determination” means a judgment, decree,
or other order of a court providing for legal custody, physical custody,
or visitation with respect to a child. The term includes a permanent,
temporary, initial, and modification order. The term does
not include an order relating to child support or other monetary
obligation of an individual.


(4) “Child custody proceeding” means a proceeding in which
legal custody, physical custody, or visitation with respect to a child
is an issue. The term includes a proceeding for divorce, legal separation,
neglect, abuse, dependency, guardianship, paternity, termination
of parental rights, and protection from domestic violence,
in which the issue may appear. “Child custody proceeding”
does not include a proceeding involving juvenile delinquency,
contractual emancipation, or enforcement under subch. III.

I might have just answered my own question......does signing a parternity affidavit in a child support office count? lol
