Now she's consulting a lawyer. You can be assured that he's advising her things that will be in her best interest. I don't know what this File 11 is, but you need to ask your lawyer detailed questions about what it is and how it protects your rights and custody over the children.
For all you know she might be filing for custody over the children there in Wisconsin and once the kids are there, they won't be coming back for you. Granted, thats worst case scenario, but you need to assume that she will not play fair.
IMHO, you are still playing Mr Nice Guy when you let them fly up there last December, and she will take advantage of Mr Nice Guy.
You'd be a fool if you don't follow lordmayhem's advice.
