This depends upon the law in your state. In my state it is allowed unless the divorce decree prohibits it (rare). Otherwise, a noncustodial parent would be stuck vacationing in the same state for many years. I would notify the other parent in writing as early as possible prior to the vacation, if possible, and keep a copy of the email or letter you send.

It is against the law for a non custodial parent to take their child out of State (can be considered kidnapping) without the written permission of the custodial parent.

If a custodial parent can take a child out of the country on vacation without telling the non-custodial parent will depend on the court order and the laws in the state they live in.

If you have physical and joint legal custody can you take the child out of state for a vacation without permission from the other parent?

I would be necessary to give the other parent notice of the pending vacation plans. Whether or not you would need permission from that parent to take an out of state trip depends upon the terms of the custodial order and the laws of the state in which the order was issued.

In Wisconsin can a parent with sole custody take a child on vaction?

Sole physical AND sole legal custody? If so, most likely as long as the visitation does not interfere with the non-custodial parent's court ordered visitation. If it does, then the parent planning such a vacation must secure permission from the other parent, or permission from the court beforehand.

It depends on the court order you have with the divorce. The non-custodial parent should have a letter from you giving permission to take the child across borders, including internationally.

Does the noncustodial parent have to notify the custodial parent if they go on vacation with the children out of state and have the children miss school days?

The non-custodial parent must notify the custodial parent of their intentions and the destination of their vacation. The custodial parent has the right to know where the child will be. Also, it is unlikely the visitation order provides that the non-custodial parent can keep the child out of school for a vacation. They would have no automatic right to do so. They would need the consent and cooperation of the custodial parent.
