Experienced Handling of Community Property Division, Custody and Other Divorce-Related Concerns

Recognizing the cost and time commitments of our clients, as well as the emotional impact of filing for divorce, our attorneys work hard to obtain efficient resolutions to divorce proceedings. Although we are committed to resolving matters without costly court trials, our lawyers will aggressively litigate when doing so fits within the objectives and best interests of our clients. Your long-term interests are one of our primary concerns. We aggressively handle various issues that are involved in divorce and legal separation, including the following:

Property division: Wisconsin is a community property state, meaning that all community property (marital assets and debts) are generally divided equally. However, it is possible to negotiate an equitable division of property that is not necessarily a 50-50 split. Attorneys from our firm often work with experts on issues that include pensions, QDROs (qualified domestic relations orders) and business valuations. We use financial consultants to determine the equitable division of all marital assets.

Child custody: We offer experienced guidance to help parents better understand Wisconsin child custody laws and work with parents to help them devise child custody and visitation arrangements that serve the best interests of the children.

Child support: Child support payments are determined by statutory guidelines. Our firm handles the initial determination of payments as well as the post-judgment issues that can arise, such as the need for child support modification or enforcement.

Spousal maintenance: Also called alimony, spousal maintenance can be awarded on a temporary or permanent basis. Some of the factors that are considered in determining the amount of maintenance to be paid, as well as the duration for which it will be paid, include length of the marriage, the parties' incomes, age and health of parties, education, earning capacity and tax consequences.
