Matters That Must Be Addressed When Getting A Divorce In Brookfield, Wisconsin

Each divorce is as different as the individual couples involved. At the same time, there are some common issues under the Wisconsin Statutes that need to be resolved in any court case before a judge can issue a final divorce order. These include:

Division of Marital Property, Assets, and Debts

Wisconsin is a community property state. This means that all marital property is divided evenly between you and your spouse during divorce proceedings. However, there are some factors that could entitle you to a larger portion in a settlement:

  • The length of your marriage;
  • Any premarital assets either party has;
  • Individual income and earnings;
  • Contributions made by each party in the marriage;
  • Whether one of the spouses squandered assets;
  • Any pre or post-nuptial agreements in place.

In addition to dividing assets, you need a thorough list of all marital debts. Our Brookfield divorce lawyers can help make sure these are addressed so they do not hinder your divorce recovery.

Spousal Maintenance and Alimony

Alimony payments in Wisconsin allow you to maintain the same standard of living you enjoyed during your marriage and help you recover financially from a divorce. Factors that influence whether you are entitled to alimony in Brookfield divorce proceedings:

  • The amount of time you were married;
  • If you make significantly less than your spouse;
  • If you sacrificed your own career or education to support your spouse or care for children;
  • The amount of marital property and assets awarded.

In addition to alimony after divorce, we can also push for spousal maintenance, which can help protect your financial security during divorce proceedings.

Child Custody and Support

Child custody is typically one of the most sensitive and potentially contentious issues dealt with in Wisconsin divorce proceedings. The term ‘custody’ generally refers to your right to make important legal decisions on your child’s behalf. Placement refers to rights and responsibilities in regard to parenting arrangements. In determining visitation and other important issues, factors the court considers include:

  • The current and prior level of involvement each parent had in the child’s life;
  • Whether each parent has the proven ability to provide for the child;
  • Whether the parties are able to cooperate in implementing parenting arrangements;
  • Problems that could put the child at risk, such as criminal behavior or alcohol and drug abuse.

Parenting arrangements, each parent’s income, and the child’s individual financial needs all factor into determining child support. Once a final order is in place, our Brookfield divorce attorney can help ensure it gets paid.
