2007 WI App 50, 300 Wis. 2d 532, 731 N.W.2d 347 (WI Ct. App., 2007)
Grandparents did not rebut presumption that the decision of the mother, a fit parent with primary placement, regarding the existing visitation, sufficiently served the best interests of the children, even though the grandparents had a parent-like relationship with the children. Since the mother had not denied visitation, there was no need for a visitation order. The facts of this case demonstrate no need for state intervention against the mother’s due process rights to make decision concerning the care, custody and control of her children.
