Glendale Wisconsin Divorce & Family Law Attorneys

Divorce is the furthest thing from your mind as you read your marriage vows. Unfortunately, in the real world, the story doesn’t always end happily ever after. While not ideal, divorce is the best course of action when a marriage has broken down beyond repair. A household ruled by conflict is not a positive environment for you or your children.

Once the decision to file for divorce is made, it’s your responsibility, to both yourself and your children, to find compassionate legal practice that will defend your best interests. The experienced Glendale divorce lawyers at Bandle & Zaeske LLP understand how difficult divorce can be and the uncertainty that accompanies. That’s why we work tirelessly to assuage those doubts by providing highly skilled and assertive legal representation while respecting the emotional nature of divorce. You and your children are people, not just another case on the court docket.

If you’re facing a divorce you’re not alone. Wisconsin, like the nation as a whole, has seen its divorce rate rise each decade over the last century, from 6.7 marriages for every divorce in 1960 to 1.8 marriages for every divorce in 2011.  The higher divorce rate has coincided with an increase in the number of divorce litigants choosing not to employ a divorce attorney and represent themselves. Divorce cases can be very difficult to navigate for those without a formal legal education. Failing to seek competent legal advice becomes a major issue if you find yourself embroiled in a hotly contested divorce.

The truth is, divorce is complicated, especially if it makes it to the courtroom.  Without formal training, navigating difficult legal concepts like child custody, the division of finances, even the procedure for presenting evidence, can be confusing. Representing yourself poorly will only put you and your children’s futures at risk.

Achieving a successful outcome in your divorce hearing requires competent and thorough legal planning. For most, that means the expert guidance of a professional Glendale divorce attorney is essential. With Bandle & Zaeske LLP you can rest assured your best interests will be defended carefully and competently.

While there is no doubt divorce will be difficult for you, it will also put significant stress on your children. It will be hard to explain why these changes are happening and reassure them that they are still loved by both parents. Carefully considering the impact your divorce will have on your children is important. Worrying about how they will react to it is normal. Still studies show that children are better off with separated parents than growing up in a home where conflict is the norm. That’s because, in most instances, once unhappy parents are separated children no longer observe their conflicts and model their confrontational behavior.

Children may be better off in the long run but that doesn’t diminish the role both parents will play in relieving their children’s uncertainties in the short term. A skilled and empathetic attorney can assist in lessening the anxiety children feel through the divorce process too. It is important for the attorney handling your case to be familiar with the psychological impact divorce can have on children and be of assistance when addressing this impact. A divorce attorney with this understanding can relay information to children appropriately and answer their questions in a meaningful way. This doesn’t mean your divorce will be stress-free but you can be sure that the lawyers at Bandle & Zaeske LLP will do everything in their power to reduce the trauma of divorce both in and outside the courtroom.
