Aggressively Protecting Your Rights During a Divorce

When you face the end of your marriage the decisions before you can be confusing and exhausting. The fear of what you don't know causes some people to stay in their marriage even longer than they should. Don't be afraid to take the first step toward a happier future. Consulting an experienced attorney can help alleviate your concerns, and ease your fear of the unknown. John T. Fields can help guide you through the divorce process and protect your future and your family.

The marital issues that lead you to this decision can have a big impact on your approach to your case. The nature of the issues between you and your spouse may dictate whether you are able to communicate and negotiate your settlement, or if you will have a battle on your hands. Before you begin, consult with an attorney to discuss all potential problems and conflicts. With John T. Fields 25 years of experience, he has seen everything possible in family law, and can help you take the most effective approach toward the outcome you want and can advise you in the best way possible in dealing with your spouse.

Divorce Process

Whether you are the Petitioner, the Respondent, or you file a Joint Petition with your spouse, the laws governing your divorce case will be the same. One spouse has to be a resident of Wisconsin for at least 6 months prior to filing, and must file in the county that they have been a resident of for at least 30 days prior to filing. These laws do not differ from county to county, but certain procedures do change from one county to the next. Additionally, the perspective of judges and commissioners will have a huge impact on your case, so it is important that you have an attorney who knows each one extremely well. The experience in these areas that our firm has will be invaluable in determining a successful case strategy and will impact the final outcome of your case.

Divorce Settlement

A divorce settlement shouldn't be just about bringing your case to a conclusion; it needs to be about planning for your future. It is not uncommon for either party in a divorce case to lose patience for the process and agree to anything just "to get it over with". This approach will not protect the future of you and your children, and a skilled advocate can help negotiate a final agreement that will assist you in moving forward in a positive way and avoiding possible future conflicts. If you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement, you will need an experienced, tough litigator who doesn't shy away from a court battle and will not stop fighting until we have done everything possible to get what you need. When your future is on the line, call an attorney you can trust to have your back in and out of court. Call our office today for a free phone consultation and see what we can do to help you.
