Wisconsin Grandparents Rights in Divorce
Grandparent Rights to Visitation:
Visitation may be granted if the grandparent has maintained a relationship with the child similar to the parent-child relationship; the court is to consider the best interest of the child and the wishes of the child. Visitation may also be granted to grandparents if one of the child's parents is deceased and the court finds that the visitation is in the child's best interest.
W.S.A. 880.155 and 767.245.

When Adoption Occurs:
Adoption has no effect on the Grandparents rights if the adoption is by the stepparent.
Child Custody Statutes:
Referred to as "legal custody and physical placement." Best interest of the child considering:
  1. wishes of parties;

  3. interaction and interrelationship between child and the parties, siblings, and any other significant person;
  4. child's adjustment to home, school and community;
