Common Divorce Disputes

Our legal team handles a variety of common divorce disputes, including:

  • child custody,
  • child placement,
  • child support,
  • financial issues (including division, retirement, or investment accounts),
  • and maintenance or alimony disputes.

If you are struggling with one of these issues, or any other divorce-related dispute, our divorce law attorneys can help. We’ll sit down with you to gather information about your particular situation, file divorce pleadings with the court on your behalf if necessary, and prepare your case for final resolution through negotiation or trial.

Helping You Reach Resolution

Our experienced Appleton divorce attorneys use a variety of techniques when handling divorce disputes, such as:

  • attending joint settlement conferences or meetings.
  • exchanging written proposals and letters.
  • filing appropriate paperwork, including summons, petitions for divorce (with or without minor children), and confidential petition addendums.
  • participating in mediation and depositions.
  • taking your claim to trial before the circuit court judge or family court commissioner.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, in Wisconsin it will take at least 120 days from the date of the divorce filing before your case will be finalized. Your attorney will work with you to achieve a resolution that is as close to your ideal outcome as the law will allow.
