State laws may not be supportive enough of shared parenting

With a plethora of research proving that shared parenting is in the best interest of children everywhere whose parents are getting divorced, it may be surprising to some that it is not promoted further by state courts. In Wisconsin and many other states, some people are questioning whether or not lawmakers are doing enough to support a shared parenting initiative for children in households where their parents have divorced. 

Being prepared to juggle retirement and divorce

When a couple has decided to get divorced from each other in Wisconsin, they face many challenges in regards to separating the life they have created together. Effectively and efficiently moving forward with life can be exponentially more difficult for couples that have been married for a longer period of time. One area that can be seriously impacted is a couple's retirement savings and plan. 

Are you still required to pay child support with no job?

You have recently been informed that your job in Wisconsin is no longer stable and it is time for you to find new employment. While this news alone has left you feeling stressed and uneasy, you are also facing the challenge of continuing to support your children through a legally required child support payment, without adequate income to cover the costs recommended by the court order.
