Identify shared parenting as in the best interest of children unless there is a physical or emotional safety issue relating to the children or one of the parents, in WI statutes.

The ideal of shared parenting should be applied to any physical placement order, from minimal supervised placement time up to equal physical placement.

The WI statute(767.41) already identifies the court shall presume that joint legal custody is in the best interest of the child. Joint custody strongly implies that shared parental decision making,  is best for children.

Two parents involvement with children that have separated parents, is the number one factor leading to positive childhood outcomes. 

Adding this wording will remind both parents at the start of the family court process that the goal is,  the best interest of their shared children is accomplished by a shared parenting plan. 

Change the overall attitudes in family courts to finding shared solutions, and away from one parent vs other parent.  With this very small wording addition we change the perception of family court from Kramer vs Kramer,  to The Kramer’s working out an agreement to shared parent the Kramer’s shared children.

Request your legislators add this sentence to statute 767.41(5): The court shall presume that shared parenting is in the best interest of the child.

Everyone wins with shared parenting!
