Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is there an age at which children are allowed to choose a primary placement parent?
A: In a word, no. There is a fairly common misconception that Wisconsin Law provides an age at which a minor child is empowered to select their placement schedule. Nothing in the statutes in fact allows a minor child to make the decision as to his/her placement.
Wisconsin Statutes 767.41(5) set forth the factors to be considered by the Court in placement disputes. The “Wishes of the child” is one of those factors. As a practical matter the child’s wishes are given greater weight as the child ages, particularly in the teen years.
Q: What is the difference between Custody and Placement?
A: Custody refers to the Legal Custody decision making authority for minor children. Legal Custody decisions include matter such as choice of school, religion, the right to obtain licenses, the right to marry and non-emergent elective health care treatment for minor children.
Wisconsin Statutes presume that it is in the best interests of a minor child that the parents share joint legal custody. This presumption can be overcome under certain circumstances including evidence of a history of domestic abuse by one of the parents as well as evidence that the parties are unable to work together to arrive at legal custody decisions in the best interest of their children.
Placement is very simply the schedule to with whom and during what periods a child resides with a parent.
Q: Does Riley Law Office represent both buyers and sellers in FSBO sales?
A: Yes, Attorney Riley will present either the buyers or the sellers in 'For Sale By Owner' (FSBO) transactions.
