What Does Legal Custody Mean in Wisconsin?
In Wisconsin, “legal custody” is used to refer to the parents’ rights and the responsibility of making major decisions for their child. This can include joint legal custody or sole legal custody. Under Wisconsin law, there’s a presumption that most of the time joint legal custody is in the best interests of the child. As such, sole legal custody is rarely granted.

What Is Physical Placement?
In Wisconsin, physical custody refers to where the child will live. Just like with legal custody, there are categories to this: joint physical custody and sole physical custody. This generally means that while a child may primarily live somewhere, both parents have visitation rights. These rights can be made into a joint agreement between the two parents with the help of our visitation rights attorney in Milwaukee.
How Are Visitation Rights Determined by the Court?
If two parents can’t come to an agreement, the court will determine the visitation schedule. Wisconsin law sets out different factors that affect these rights, including the parent’s wishes, the relationship between parent and child, the work schedule of each parent, the amount and quality of time each parent has spent with the child in the past, and whether each parent’s health affects their ability to be a productive parent.
Can Parenting Time Orders Be Changed?
In Wisconsin, a parenting time order can be changed if a significant change in circumstances has occurred. Our child custody attorney can explain when this applies and how to file the appropriate petitions to get this change implemented.
