Help With Your Family Law Matter
Family law is a varied area of law, encompassing many aspects of divorce, child custody, paternity and adoptions, and all the many legal details that can develop with these procedures. At Remley & Sensenbrenner, our attorneys understand the challenges you face and can help you deal with all the issues.
We have worked with a wide range of clients and have the experience to carefully analyze your circumstances, explain the law and how it applies to your situation and develop the legal strategies to achieve your goals.
Broad Experience With Family Law Issues
Our lawyers can represent and counsel you with a comprehensive range of family law topics, including:
Divorce: The legal end of a marriage, the process often involves other related issues like property division, spousal maintenance (alimony), child custody and support. We can provide advice and counsel, and represent you with litigation, mediation or with the collaborative divorce process.
Marital property agreements: In most cases, property acquired during a marriage becomes ‘marital property’ and is subject to division during a divorce. A marital property agreement allows the couple to change the classification of their property. We can explain why you may want to do this and are experienced with drafting these agreements.
Support maintenance and custody placement disputes: In Wisconsin, the aspects of child custody are defined by the concepts of ‘legal custody’ and ‘physical placement.’ Legal custody encompasses the parental decision making for a child and physical placement deals with where the child lives and their time with their parent. Support and maintenance relate to financial support granted to a child or family. Our attorneys can help you with all elements of these disputes.
Mediation: Litigation is expensive, time-consuming and stressful. Mediation is frequently used to resolve child custody and placement disputes and provides an alternative method, where the parties work to develop resolutions for their disputes in a cooperative fashion. Mediation is nonbinding; the parties must agree to agree, and this allows the process to be less expensive and take less time to complete.
Adoption: Is the legal process for obtaining parental rights with a child. This can be done for an individual or couple to adopt an infant at birth or for any other circumstance involving an older child. We can assist with stepparent and relative adoptions and explain other necessary elements, such as the termination of the birth parent’s parental rights.
Paternity: This is the formal process of legally recognizing a man as the father of a child. There are many reasons for this being necessary, from a father wanting legal access to his child or a mother wanting child support. We can help you understand what you need to do and the legal implications.
