  Separation

Separation

As with a divorce, a Legal Separation can be done pro se or with an attorney. Many of the same procedures are followed and the same concerns and problems arise as in a divorce. The major difference between a separation and a divorce is that the parties to a legal separation remain legally married.

  Divorce

Divorce

When you decide to proceed with a divorce there is a big question that arises: Can I do it on my own or do I need to hire an attorney? It is possible to do a divorce pro se. However you might end up with an uneven split of property or lose out on your share of a retirement account. In Wisconsin all divorces are "no fault," meaning there is no blame put on any party for the dissolution of a marriage. Therefore all divorce proceedings focus on splitting marital assets and debt, the care and support of minor children and to determine if either party qualifies for maintenance.

The West Bend attorneys at the Law Office of John A. Best know there is no simple divorce, especially if there are children involved. There are many "gray areas" that we can guide you through for the best end result. A divorce is very emotional for both parties. That is why hiring an experienced attorney at the Law Office of John A. Best will be your first step in the right direction towards a new life. Please contact us for a consultation.
