Cudahy, Wisconsin, Child Visitation Lawyer

By Wisconsin law, a determination of both legal custody and legal placement (visitation) must be made when parents separate. The goal of any parenting plan should be to facilitate parent cooperation so the divorce or separation has the least possible impact on the children. Important details regarding where a child lives, how much time the child spends with each parent and the role each parent plays in the life of the child must be worked out.

Experienced Representation in Difficult Cases

Occasionally, a custody or visitation case can become difficult. Maybe one parent appears to be unfit to have custody or visitation privileges. The Law Offices of Paul A. Maranan has experience handling situations of family violence or other abuse. Oftentimes, by investigating the other party, information is revealed that helps the courts in rewarding increased child visitation rights.

The swift resolution of child custody and visitation rights depends on the couple acting in the best interest of the child and formulating a parenting plan in a rational manner. Securing experienced custody and visitation counsel is crucial from the very start of the process. Contact the Milwaukee child custody lawyer at the Law Offices of Paul A. Maranan to discuss your case and options.
