A: In Wisconsin, the court considers the best interests of the child when making decisions about child custody and placement. If one parent has a history of domestic violence and there are concerns about the safety and well-being of the child, the court may take that into account when determining custody and visitation rights.

Courts prioritize the safety of the child and may be hesitant to grant custody or unsupervised visitation to a parent with a history of domestic violence. However, each case is unique, and the court will consider all relevant factors before making a decision.
