Racine County Wisconsin Divorce Lawyers

Choosing to file for a Racine divorce may not be an easy decision to make, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a nightmare process to undertake. Whether your split from your spouse is mutually desired or not, the process for filing for divorce doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Hiring the correct divorce lawyer will determine how smooth the process will be for you. The Racine County divorce attorneys at Bandle & Zaeske LLP will give you just that: peace of mind and guidance during every step of your divorce process.

Christie Bandle and Eric Zaeske are experts in all areas of Family Law and divorce. Together they have over thirty years’ experience in the court room, covering child custody issues, uncontested divorce cases and even paternity hearings. They understand how difficult a time it is for you, and they are determined to provide quality service and guidance.

The qualified and compassionate Racine divorce lawyers at Bandle & Zaeske LLP want you to know and understand all the steps and procedures that characterize and govern getting a divorce in Wisconsin. From divorce mediation to child support issues, you will not be left in the dark when it comes to what is happening with your divorce.

Any divorce will be difficult. One of the most stressful aspects of divorce is how it will affect any children you and your spouse have. Your children are especially susceptible to feelings of inadequacy and guilt that may stem from their parents’ separation. Children face many uncertainties and questions that are difficult to process, most notably, what parent they will live with.

Studies show that a divorce that proceeds with as little conflict as possible is the most ideal scenario for children. Handling issues like child custody and child support with finesse and discretion is essential to ensure children don’t turn into courtroom bargaining chips. This is obvious, but achieving this situation is difficult. While mutual divorce depends most heavily on both parents working together, an experienced Racine County divorce attorney can help promote a constructive dialogue.

Despite your best efforts, sometimes an uncooperative ex-spouse can make a completely mutual divorce impossible. Complicated and contested divorces can occur in a number of situations. Sometimes one spouse surprises the other with divorce papers. In other situations, both parties mutually agree to the divorce but can’t come to any agreement about the divisions of property, child custody or child support.

Competent and dedicated legal representation is essential in any complicated or contested divorce. Sometimes disagreements over child custody and the division of property can be worked through and an agreeable settlement can be reached outside the courtroom. But, more often than not, hotly contested divorces end up being decided before a judge.

More and more divorce litigants are choosing to represent themselves at their hearing. This increase in the number of pro se litigants has put significant stress on the family court system. That is because most pro se litigants are painfully ill-equipped to represent themselves in a court of law. They’re often unfamiliar with basic legal procedure let alone the specific legalities that govern divorce.

The division of propertychild support and child custody are governed by complex legal statutes and procedures that can be confusing for the uninitiated. Approaching these subjects as a pro se litigant without a strong framework of understanding only puts you and your children’s interests at risk. In a divorce characterized by intense conflict, that weakness is something your ex-spouse and their attorney will prey upon.

Save yourself the stress of trying to correct mistakes later by consulting an expert Racine County divorce attorney from the start of your divorce. The attorneys at Bandle & Zaeske LLP will provide you with excellent guidance throughout complicated divorce process. We will keep you updated about the status of your divorce consistently and in language you can understand. Most of all, we’ll fight hard to ensure your best interests are cared for and that you and your children receive the settlement you deserve.
