Lawyers Helping Clients Through the Divorce Process in Dane County, Rock County, and Jefferson County

Divorce can be a difficult and emotional process, especially when there are children involved. In Wisconsin, divorce proceedings must be handled through the state's family law court system. An experienced attorney can help you navigate the complicated divorce process and ensure that your rights are protected as you work to dissolve your marriage. With our knowledge of divorce laws in Wisconsin and our experience representing clients in multiple types of complex cases, John T. Fields & Associates, LLC can provide invaluable assistance to those who are planning to legally terminate their marriages.

With our extensive experience representing clients in divorce and family law cases, we can help you overcome any challenges that you may encounter. With our aggressive, dedicated approach, we will ensure that your rights are protected at all times, and we will advocate for you and help ensure that you reach an outcome that will provide for your ongoing success.

Representation in Contested and Uncontested Divorce in Wisconsin

While every divorce is unique, there are some common approaches that may be taken depending on your individual circumstances. If you and your spouse are willing and able to work together to negotiate agreements and create a divorce settlement, you may be able to complete an uncontested divorce. This is often the ideal option, since it can allow you to finalize your divorce much more quickly and efficiently. If necessary, you may use mediation to reach agreements, or we may be able to work with you, your spouse, and their attorney to negotiate a workable settlement.

On the other hand, there may be some situations where reaching agreements may be difficult or impossible. If domestic abuse has occurred during your marriage, if the level of conflict is high enough that productive discussions cannot be held, or if one or both parties refuse to compromise on certain matters, you may need to take your case before a judge and ask them to make the final decisions. We can provide you with strong representation during a contested divorce, helping you prepare for litigation and advocating on your behalf during a divorce trial.

Addressing Issues Related to Your Property and Finances

Financial concerns are some of the most important issues to address during the divorce process. When dividing marital property, you will want to make sure all the marital assets you own will be evaluated correctly, including physical property, real estate, business interests, financial accounts, and more. As you work to negotiate a property settlement, we can help you determine the options that are available, and we will advise you on the long-term impact of the decisions you make. Our goal is to help you achieve an outcome that will meet your financial needs going forward.

We can also help you understand whether spousal support (alimony) will play a role in your divorce. If you believe that you should receive support from your spouse, or if you are being asked to pay support, we can advise you on how Wisconsin law applies in your situation, and we will advocate for solutions that will protect your financial interests.

Finding Solutions That Protect Your Children's Best Interests

Issues related to your children may be a source of intense conflict between you and your spouse, and the two of you may disagree about how you will share child custody. We will make sure you understand the best ways to protect your parental rights, and we will advocate for an outcome that will protect the best interests of your children. We can help you negotiate a parenting agreement that will allow you and your spouse to work together as co-parents, addressing both legal custody and physical custody (also known as physical placement or visitation). We can also ensure that child support obligations will be established correctly so that your children will have the financial resources needed to grow up successfully. With our help, you can focus on what is best for your children and make sure you and your spouse will be able to cooperate as much as possible in the years to come.
