The Factors in a Wisconsin Child Custody Case
When deciding upon Custody and Placement, Wisconsin family law Court’s utilize the “best interest of the child” as the legal standard. Accompanied with this standard are several factors at the disposal of the Court to ensure a child’s interests are best protected. The Court will consider a child’s health (both physical and emotional), and social development needs. Additionally, there are many other factors that a Court will consider that include but are not limited to the following:
- The wishes of the child’s parent or parents
- The wishes of the child
- The interaction and interrelationship of the child with his parents or any other person who may significantly affect the child’s best interests
- The child’s adjustment to the home, school, religion, and community
- The need for regularly occurring and meaningful periods of physical placement to provide predictability and stability for the child
Wisconsin Court’s may also consider any other factor that is deemed relevant to ensure the child’s best interests are accommodated. While Wisconsin Law presumes that shared custody and placement is in the best interests of the child, Court’s may award sole custody or majority placement when the circumstances merit doing so. To protect your full parental rights, it is necessary that you work with an educated and experienced Wisconsin Family Law Attorney. We can help you prepare for your case and prove through the court process that you can provide the best environment for your children.
