Split Custody in Wisconsin

Split custody is a custody agreement between two parents were the children are split up. This means one child lives with one parent, and the other children live with the other parent.

Split custody is a less common form of custody that is only considered when multiple children are involved. With split custody,[1] custody of children from the same parents can be split up in a way where some children live with one parent while the remaining children live with the other.

Although the children may primarily live with one parent, they will still spend some time with the other parent in the form of visitation. Split custody isn't established to intentionally separate siblings from one another, but it is done when it is in the best interest of the child. Reasons for split custody are varied and can include siblings not getting along, or one parent having a better relationship with a child than the other parent.

Split custody may also be considered if the parents live in different cities and a child doesn't want to transfer schools.
