In Wisconsin whether a person is lesbian or gay is not a specific criteria for determination of custody and placement of a minor child.  However, it is fair to say that the issue of a parent’s sexual orientation may become a focus of the custody/support decision.  It is recognized that a parent’s sexual orientation alone does not necessarily affect the best interests of the children which is the broad-based criteria for custody/placement decisions.Organizations which provide insight into issues addressing gay and lesbian parents include:
