CUSTODY & PLACEMENT


In all Wisconsin divorce cases involving and all paternity cases the court issues orders regarding child custody and placement.

Under Wisconsin law, custody is a decision making authority regarding a child’s major life decisions such as where he or she will attend school, whether he or she will undergo nonemergency medical treatment, and other important decisions.  Placement refers to where a child spends his or her time on a day-to-day basis.

After an initial determination of custody and placement in a divorce or paternity, circumstances may change requiring a change to the custody or placement orders.  The attorneys at Gagne, McChrystal, De Lorenzo and Burghardt, located in Milwaukee, WI, have extensive experience representing parents in divorce, paternity, and post-judgment proceedings.
