Joint Legal Custody: In Wisconsin, the law presumes it is in the best interests of the child for the parents to share decision-making authority. This is referred to as legal custody. When parents have joint or shared legal custody, both parents are involved in important decisions involving the child, such as choice of school and religion, medical and treatment decisions and other major decisions. Legal custody does not refer to the day-to-day decisions. If you are awarded placement, you are entitled to make the day-to-day decisions during your periods of placement in line with the joint custody decisions you have made with the other parent.
Physical Placement: Under Wisconsin child custody laws, the determination of the child’s residence is referred to as physical placement. One parent can be granted primary physical placement while the other parent is granted periods of placement or the parties can be awarded shared placement of the child. The placement schedules can vary greatly depending on many factors considered by the court. All child custody-related decisions are made according to the best interests of the child. Unless a court determines that periods of physical placement (visitation) with a parent would endanger the physical, mental or emotional health of the child, it is in the best interests of the child to have meaningful and consistent contact with both parents.
