Wehrli - CONGRATS!!! So thrilled for you. Too bad you can't throw it in your Gov's face! (Our sucks too!) How did the process work? Did you simply go before the judge or did you have to go through with signing over your legal rights, etc?  Did you have to go to Madison to do so or was it done in Racine? So thrilled for you guys, and little mister! We have a meeting with our attorney the week of June 20. I am very nervous - it's the south! Ugh!

2ez, i got to maintain all of my maternal rights while DP is co-guardian. i guess the law states that a judge can write up a guardianship any way s/he chooses. so we hired a lawyer from madison, she traveled to racine and we all went before the judge. the guardian ad litem was also there. the judge was really cool, she recognized that we would probably get married and do a second parent adoption if we could. we were in and out of the court room in 25 minutes!

best of luck with the meeting with your attorney! and thanks for your support!

I live in Madison and am looking for an attorney.  Who did you use?  I am really frustrated with this state and our LACK of rights.  I know a judge in La Crosse that grants second-parent adoptions even though they are not legal...but if they are contested they probably would not hold up.  I have also heard of parentage, but recent cases have caused them to be illegal as well.  I am really interested to learn about co-guardianship!
