In Re The Termination Of Parental Rights of Tammie J.C. v. Robert T.R.


2003 WI 61, 262 Wis. 2d 200, 663 N.W.2d 734 (2003)


Traditional personal jurisdiction is not required in child custody proceedings. The status exception to the personal jurisdiction requirements in the UCCJA provides a basis of exercising jurisdiction in child custody cases. Wis. Stat. ยง801.05 (11) provides sufficient due process protection to out-of-state parents.
