Milwaukee Divorce Attorney
Dealing with a divorce can be a difficult time for an individual and his or her family. At the Law Offices of Paul A. Maranan, we strive to help our clients effectively deal with their divorce and the issues resulting from the divorce. Our firm is dedicated to seeking a resolution to your divorce matters as efficiently as possible, while minimizing the additional emotional toll it may take on your family.
We can assist clients in determining how the marital property, which includes homes, cars, property, pensions, retirement accounts (401K) and other assets, will be divided. Wisconsin laws dictate that the property is distributed according to the terms of equitable distribution. This means that property is not necessarily divided 50-50, but fairly and equitably between parties.
Spousal Support and Maintenance
Formerly known as alimony, spousal support (maintenance) is not always awarded in each divorce case. We strive to assess our client’s situation and determine if we need to pursue spousal support payments. We also represent the interests of clients attempting to prevent alimony from being awarded.
Child custody and child support are two of the most highly contested issues in a divorce proceeding where the couple has children. We are dedicated to helping clients understand their rights when seeking a resolution to custody and support matters. While handling these issues, we ensure that the best interests of the children are always at the forefront of the case.
Avenues of Resolution
When facing a divorce, there are several ways in which we can handle the case. We can litigate the case and take it to court if necessary. However, we realize that court is not always in our client’s best interests. If a resolution to the divorce decree is sought out of court, we can assist clients in understanding if mediation or collaborative law may better serve their needs.
Attorney Marana also provides mediation services, serving as the mediator to resolve divorce-related matters.
