In Re Custody of H.S.H-K


193 Wis.2d 649, 533 N.W.2d 419 (1995)


No custody action under ch. 767, but court has equitable power to protect child’s best interests by ordering visitation. Courts have jurisdiction in equity to act in the best interests of a child. Court can order visitation where petitioner has parent-like relationship and a significant triggering event justifies state intervention.
