Common Issues In An Appleton Divorce

There are complex issues under the Wisconsin Statutes that must be resolved in any type of divorce case. The outcome could impact your relationships with children, your rights regarding property and assets, and your overall financial security for years to come. To ensure these issues are successfully addressed, get our team at Karp & Iancu, S.C. on your side.

With over 30 years of experience representing clients, our Appleton divorce attorney acts as a strong legal ally on your side. We identify and resolve important matters in your case, including:

  • Division of Marital Property and Assets: Anything earned, acquired, or otherwise accumulated over the course of your marriage must be divided evenly between you and your spouse. This includes homes, cars, household items, personal belongings, money in bank accounts, shares in business, and retirement benefits.
  • Spousal Maintenance and Alimony: If you make significantly less than your spouse or sacrificed your career or education for the marriage, you may be entitled to alimony payments. These can help protect your standard of living, both during divorce and in the years after.
  • Child Custody and Visitation: Custody deals with the right to make important legal decisions on behalf of your children, such as regarding education, medical care, and religious upbringing. Physical placement addresses where they live and rights regarding visitation.
  • Child Support and Enforcement: Each parent’s income, the child’s individual needs, and visitation schedules all factor into determining child support amounts. Once a court order is issued, our Appleton divorce attorney can take action to ensure it is enforced.
  • Appeals: If you require a restraining order, you are most likely already stressed. You do not have to go through the process of ensuring your safety and obtaining a court order on your own.
  • Paternity: Appleton parents have certain rights and responsibilities. Most laws assume that each parent has the right and obligation to spend time with their child.
  • Pre-Nuptial Agreements: Under Wisconsin law, prenuptial agreements are known as marital property agreements. A prenuptial agreement is a legal contract that specifies which marital property belongs to which party in the event of a divorce between a married couple.
  • Restraining Order Enforcement: Restraining orders are frequently required during divorce proceedings, particularly when one of the parties becomes abusive or threatens their spouse.

My wife/ex wife filed for divorce (my fault). I talked to a couple firms that you hear advertise on local radio. They didn’t seem too interested in specific situation. When I spoke with Karp and Iancu it just felt different. He let me talk about my questions, concerns and then answered my questions. The team assigned to my case were thorough and always available to help walk me through this.
