Do I Need a Lawyer to Negotiate a Wisconsin Child Custody Arrangement?

Many families who are strapped for cash or don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on a family law attorney will be anxious to know whether retaining legal representation is necessary when negotiating a child custody arrangement in Wisconsin. 

While there is no law that states you have to retain an attorney to work through your child custody issues, having one can certainly benefit your case. Read on to learn more about why it may be well advised to secure an attorney if you are preparing to negotiate a child custody plan in Wisconsin.

Formulating Your Child Custody Plan

Child custody issues are often difficult to overcome when parents find it difficult to work together to keep the child’s best interests a top priority. Some parents are out to spite each other, while others get so caught up in the separation or divorce that they simply aren’t able to see that their child deserves to have a relationship with their other parent. 

No matter what your situation, if you are struggling or expect to struggle to come to a custody agreement with your child’s other parent, having a lawyer may be the best way to formulate a plan that works for the family as a whole. 

Child Support Considerations

Child support and child custody are two completely separate matters, and if your child’s other parent is not paying child support, they do not lose the opportunity to have a relationship with, visitation with, or custody of their child. Your attorney can assist you in applying for child support separately so you can focus your attention on figuring out your custody agreement and worry about child support later.
