Expert Legal Guidance for Difficult Times

Going through a divorce can be an emotionally draining process, and it can also result in financial difficulties and a variety of other practical concerns. Separating from your spouse can be hard enough even if you expect your divorce to be relatively simple, since you may be uncertain about the legal procedures you will need to follow and the issues you will need to address in divorce court. In more complex cases involving contested issues, valuable assets, or shared custody of children, the divorce process can become much more complicated. To make sure you will be able to approach this process correctly, it is crucial to have an experienced advocate on your side who can help you navigate the legal aspects of dissolving your marriage.

At John T. Fields & Associates, LLC, our attorney is well-versed in the laws surrounding divorce, and we can help you understand how to address issues related to the assets you own, financial support, child custody, and more. We will work to protect your rights during the legal process and ensure that your interests are represented as you negotiate agreements with your spouse or address matters in the courtroom. With our knowledge of local courts in Green County and the processes followed in divorce and family law cases, we are equipped to guide you through this difficult time.

Addressing Legal Concerns in a Green County Divorce

As you go through the divorce process, you will need to address a variety of legal issues. We can provide invaluable guidance in these matters, helping you address concerns related to:

  • Contested divorce - Ideally, you and your spouse will be able to negotiate between yourselves to resolve disagreements, create a divorce settlement, and complete an uncontested divorce. However, if you have experienced high levels of conflict that have made it impossible to cooperate with each other and engage in effective negotiations, you may need to take your case to court and ask a judge to decide how any outstanding issues will be resolved. We can provide you with representation during divorce litigation, advocating for solutions that will protect your best interests.
  • Property division - Many of the most critical issues that you will need to address during your divorce will be related to the fair and equitable division of marital property. You may need to determine the value of a variety of different types of assets and make decisions about how they will be divided between you and your spouse. We can help you address property such as your home, vehicles, family businesses, investments, physical belongings, and retirement accounts, as well as any debts or liabilities you and your spouse share. We can help you understand the relevant laws in Wisconsin that address marital property, and we will work to ensure that the division of assets is equitable and reasonable while meeting your financial needs.
  • Alimony and spousal support - In some divorce cases, one spouse may be required to provide ongoing financial support to their former partner. This form of support may be appropriate if one spouse earns a significantly higher income or if one spouse did not work during the couple's marriage or does not have sufficient work experience and education that will allow them to fully support themselves. We can help you address matters surrounding spousal support, including requesting support from your spouse or responding to requests that you pay support. We will work to ensure that any payments ordered by the court will be fair and appropriate for your particular case.
  • Domestic abuse - Violent behavior or other forms of abuse by one spouse against the other or against a couple's children can play a major role in a divorce. Disputes between spouses may be difficult to resolve in these situations, since spouses may be unable to communicate effectively with each other and negotiate agreements. These matters will often need to be resolved in the courtroom. If you have been the victim of abuse, or if you have been accused of committing abuse against your spouse or children, we can provide you with representation during your divorce and help you achieve an outcome that will protect the safety and well-being of you and your family.
  • Divorce modifications - In addition to helping clients navigate the initial divorce process, we are also equipped to assist with modifications of divorce and child custody orders. These modifications may become necessary due to changes in circumstances, such as the loss of a job or a planned relocation by a parent. We have experience handling these types of cases in Green County, and we can help ensure that modifications are made in accordance with Wisconsin law while protecting the best interests of you and your children.
