  • In Wisconsin anyway, the children dont have any say until they are 18 where they go. I dont have much advice, but maybe you can find out why the boy is crying? If there is any abuse (emotional or physical) to the child, you should have a good case. Unfortunately courts arent as wonderful as you would think.

  • call him or tell your ex to let him call you whenever he misses you. maybe you can give him a picture of yourself to keep with him for when he misses you

  • He just needs time to adjust. Thats his father and you should foster a good relationship with them even though you want him with you. I know its hard, but it benefits your son if he has a close dad and son bond
