West Bend Wisconsin Divorce Lawyers

Divorce may be more common than it was 50 years ago, but that doesn’t make the entire process an easier path to follow. Divorce often causes emotional turmoil and stress on the couple that is separating, but it can be even worse for children. It can be a truly devastating experience if not handled with skill and sensitivity.

The West Bend divorce lawyers at Bandle & Zaeske LLP have over 40 combined years of practicing family law in Wisconsin, and have been recognized by our peers and clients alike for our sympathetic, honorable approach to divorce cases.

We have served the Washington County, Ozaukee County, Waukesha County, and Milwaukee County area for many years, and have a thorough understanding of Southeastern Wisconsin values. Our experience in the region guides our compassionate, respectful, and knowledgeable approach to all divorce situations, especially when those situations involve children of any age.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, nearly half of all marriages in Wisconsin end in divorce, and over half of these divorces affect children under eighteen years of age. As painful as divorce can be for all involved, it is often better to end a marriage that just isn’t working out. Research shows that this is especially true for the children involved.

Children whose parents have divorced do better in the long run than children who are raised in households with continuing marital conflict. Additionally, children of all ages handle the divorce of their parents better when there is less conflict during the divorce process.

So if there are children affected by your divorce, it is especially important to take care and work with an expert child support lawyer in West Bend to ensure that the process is handled with care and compassion, and the best interests of your children are represented. In addition to our extensive immersion in Wisconsin family law, Bandle & Zaeske LLP’s divorce lawyers has a wealth of experience negotiating settlements involving children, and re-visiting child or spousal support rulings if you or your ex’s life situation changes.

We know you want to be there for all of your child’s milestones, from their first steps, to the first day of school, to their first goal in soccer. We will work hard to make sure you receive a fair shake, and we understand that the challenges do not end once the divorce papers are officially signed and your property has been re-distributed accordingly.

Ideally, you and your spouse can come to an amicable agreement about child support, visitation and custody, the distribution of property and many of the other issues that arise in a divorce.

However, the real world almost never presents these scenarios in simple terms. You and your spouse may not even agree on the time of day, but you both still want what’s best for your children and yourselves. If you leave the matter to be fought out in court, achieving the best outcome for you and your children could become a perilous endeavor.

Despite your best efforts, sometimes a contentious divorce proceeding is unavoidable. In these cases, it is crucial to have a representative with the skill and presence to effectively defend your interests in the courtroom, as well as the interests of your children. Our divorce lawyers have a track record of successful litigation in West Bend, as well as of securing favorable outcomes in the courtroom.
