The Child's Bill of Rights

The judicial system in each state considers numerous factors in arriving at a final and proper child custody arrangement. After reviewing all of these factors, the Wisconsin Supreme Court devised a guideline for a child's rights. These basic rights are upheld in all 50 states.

The right to:
  • a continuing relationship with both parents.
  • be treated not as a piece of property, but as a human being recognized to have unique feelings, ideas, and desires consistent with that of an individual.
  • continuing care and proper guidance from each parent.
  • not to be unduly influenced by either parent to view the other parent differently.
  • express love, friendship, and respect for both parents; freedom from having to hide those stated emotions or made to be ashamed of such.
  • an explanation that the impending action of divorce was in no way caused by the child's actions.
  • not to be the subject and/or source of any and all arguments.
  • continuing, honest feedback with respect to the divorce process and its impact on the changing relationships of the family.
  • maintain regular contact with both parents and a clear explanation for any change in plans and/or cancellations.
  • enjoy a pleasurable relationship with both parents, never to be employed as a manipulative bargaining tool.
