Courts tended to side with mothers in child custody cases for much of the 20th century. In fact, joint custody was so rare in some jurisdictions that it was largely reserved for children of criminal or psychologically unstable mothers. But now, courts in Wisconsin and other states are likely to consider or even encourage joint custody for children of divorced parents.
Like all states, Wisconsin has a law prohibiting drinking and driving to help keep the public safe. There are also laws that make it illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to enjoy an alcoholic beverage or for adults to provide alcohol to minors. Unfortunately, neither of these laws actually prevent teenagers from drinking or from getting behind the wheel when leaving a party.
Driving under the influence of alcohol is never a good idea. Alcohol and many illegal recreational drugs cause a reduced ability to use good judgment and react quickly enough to drive safely. Although every jurisdiction in Wisconsin and the United States has laws against drunk driving, some jurisdictions are taking a more progressive look at the crime.
