We provide representation in the following areas:
Contemplating divorce is tough. Taking that next step of calling a divorce lawyer is even harder, however, it is important to choose a lawyer that will fight for your best interests and inform you of the options available to you. O'Connor Law Offices provides one free confidential consultation so you can learn about your legal rights, such as your right to your children, your assets, and your obligation to pay creditors. We will work with you to help you understand your options and the best course of action in your paternity or divorce case. Divorce in southeastern Wisconsin can be challenging to ensure a fair and proper outcome for all involved so contact us today.
Finances and legal matters are only a part of the decisions that need to be made and agree upon. Financial matters can get complicated as Wisconsin is a community property state which means all items acquired while married are owned by both spouses. Beyond the financial and legal issues, child support and child custody are other very important matters. These decisions are intertwined and can affect more than just the two filing for divorce. We will help you learn about the rights and expectations involved with divorce cases and the support and custody of your children.
Attorney O'Connor is also a Wisconsin State Certified Mediator in Divorce and Child Custody Cases. As a second and alternative approach to dispute resolution, O'Connor offers mediation services to those who wish to avoid formal and costly litigation at the onset of a disagreement. Divorce and child custody agreements that result in court cases can take a long time to arrive in trial and can cause unneeded contention and costs. Mediation services, however, are usually quicker and can lead to mutually beneficial results with clear and direct communication led by an impartial person. Mutually agreed upon results are generally more satisfying to both parties and avoid future disputes that will affect the children later on, regarding child support and custody.
Divorce attorney Margaret O'Connor also works with a variety of talented professionals in the Racine and Kenosha area that are available to provide collateral family services to assist with favorable outcomes in both the criminal and family court arena. These local referrals include respected individual and family counselors and therapists, parenting and child education classes, psychological and alcohol/drug evaluations, job search programs, and drug rehabilitation programming.
