  Post-Judgment Information Sheet

 

Child Custody

Child custody can be handled both inside and outside of the courtroom. The parties can enter into a
properly guided mediation process to see if a voluntary agreement can be reached regarding child custody
or visitation rights. If a mutually acceptable agreement cannot be reached, the judge will decide the ultimate or temporary rights. Legal custody can be jointly awarded to the parents, solely awarded to one parent, or awarded to a third-party.

 

Paternity
Establishing paternity means legally determining the biological father of a child. The only way to determine paternity of a child is to take a DNA paternity test. In the State of Wisconsin, paternity tests using the DNA
of a father are conducted anytime there is a question as to who the biological father of a child may be. Establishing paternity and paternity rights can be extremely important for both the mother and father of
a child.

 

The advantages of establishing paternity include:

 

  • Right to visitation to the child
  • Right to custody to the child
  • Rights for parental support payments

 

If there is a question regarding the paternity of a child, paternity testing should be done as early as possible in the divorce or custody process.
