A Sympathetic Team of Milwaukee Child Custody Lawyers
Serving clients in Milwaukee County and Waukesha County
If you have children and you are facing a divorce, you must retain competent counsel immediately. Having been recognized in both Super Lawyers Magazine through 2011 and Best Lawyers in America, the dedicated Milwaukee child custody attorneys at Karp Law Offices, S.C. have the experience and knowledge you need. In addition, we realize that child custody cases often cross state lines. As a result, we are qualified to assist you with interstate child custody disputes.
Our knowledgeable attorneys can explain to you that in the state of Wisconsin, there is no presumption that spouses will receive 50/50 shared time of their children. Rather, the court always looks out for the best interests of the children.
Below are some of the factors the court may consider when determining who should be awarded custody:
- The wishes of either parent
- The wishes and preference of the child (if he or she is old enough)
- The mental and physical state of all parties involved
- The relationship the child has with his or her parents, siblings and extended relatives
- Whether the child is comfortable with his or her parents, home, school or community
Uniquely qualified child custody lawyer
As a guardian ad litem, attorney David B. Karp has unique experience regarding handling child custody cases. A guardian ad litem is a person who represents the best interests of a child during a custody proceeding. Guardian ad litems do not work for the court services and do not act as the child's lawyer. Rather, they conduct an independent investigation and provide a recommendation to the court regarding the future of the child.
Having handled many cases as a guardian ad litem, Mr. Karp has a deep understanding of how to handle a Milwaukee child custody case. Since 1982, individuals seeking child custody assistance throughout Milwaukee County and Waukesha County have come to rely on him as a valuable asset and trusted advisor. Additionally, Mr. Karp is proud to handle cases related to child support, divorce, paternity, property division and other aspects of family law.
