Absolutely incredible. Helpful and reassuring. Listened to my case details, took notes, guided me through what to expect. Set me up for success. Gave me reasonable payment plans if I ever needed their help. I will definitely recommend to anyone, and will call on them again if needed they seem like an amazing group of people. The gentleman I spoke with was attorney Corey A. Montiho.

Choosing the Divorce Option That’s Right For You

Uncontested Divorce

When spouses agree on key issues like asset division, alimony and child custody, an uncontested divorce can finalize the divorce relatively quickly. A streamlined process is cheaper and usually less contentious.

Contested Divorce

If spouses cannot agree on terms, the court will make the final decision on disputed issues. Our lawyers will strongly advocate for your interests in contested divorce hearings. The process of a contested divorce tends to take longer and costs more.

Mediated Divorce

Mediation involves working with a neutral third party to negotiate agreements and find mutually beneficial agreements. Meditation allows you to play an active role in shaping the outcome of your divorce.


An annulment legally voids a marriage as if it never occurred. Strict criteria must be met to have a marriage annulled like fraud, lack of consummation or incapacity. An annulment will terminate all marital responsibilities.

Factors That May Affect Your Divorce

  • Length of the marriage
  • Children
  • Joint assets and debts
  • Income disparity
  • Business ownership
  • Employment status
  • History of domestic violence, substance abuse or criminal behavior

Family Law Services in Mequon

We offer support and legal guidance in Mequon for:

Child Custody

When parents divorce in Wisconsin, child custody agreements are determined by assessing both legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody is the right to make important decisions about healthcare, education and other aspects of raising the child. Physical custody (or placement) refers to the amount of time the child spends with each parent.

Wisconsin courts start divorce cases with the presumption joint custody, with both parents actively involved in the child’s upbringing, serves the best interests of the child. Parents can, however, pursue sole legal and physical custody.

Custody arrangements can be modified if circumstances change or if alterations are needed to serve the child’s best interests. Modifications may involve adjusting living situations or visitation schedules. Following proper legal procedures and providing compelling reasons for change can help ensure success when seeking modifications.

Child Support

Child support ordered during divorce aims to meet the child’s needs and varies from case to case. Wisconsin’s child support guidelines will account for parental income and the number of children, as well as healthcare and education costs for all children.

Child support guidelines will provide a starting point, but adjustments may be made based on aspects like large medical expenses, specific educational needs and divided physical placement schedules.

Use our Wisconsin child support calculator for a payment estimate based on primary and shared placement schedules.

Divorce Mediation

For couples seeking an amicable divorce, mediation can provide a collaborative path forward. The process creates a cooperative environment for you and your spouse to negotiate agreements on sensitive subjects like asset division and child custody.

Mediation encourages open communication and compromise, empowering you to shape equitable outcomes. Most couples find mediation allows them to finalize divorce faster without the expense and stress of an adversarial legal battle.


Legally establishing paternity identifies the biological father of a child in Wisconsin. Once paternity is determined, the father gains custody, visitation and child support obligations. Our Mequon divorce attorneys can guide you through the process of getting a paternity test, signing the Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement form and pursuing legal action to establish paternity if needed. We help ensure fathers have the chance to be involved while also upholding their responsibilities.

High Net Worth

Our attorneys are highly experienced with divorces involving substantial assets and complex finances. We understand the intricacies of dividing and distributing significant marital property like businesses, trusts and real estate. We also have expertise in determining fair spousal support in high net worth cases. These divorces often require more involved legal knowledge to reach equitable resolutions while protecting our clients’ interests.


We recognize military divorces present unique challenges like frequent relocation, deployments and dividing military benefits. Our Wisconsin divorce lawyers have specialized knowledge regarding pensions, healthcare, housing allowances and other benefits military members and veterans receive. We fight to secure our clients’ entitled benefits in divorce proceedings.

Jurisdictional concerns can also arise when spouses live apart across state lines or overseas. We are prepared to handle any complex multidistrict issues to pursue the optimal legal approach for our clients.

How does divorce affect children?

The biggest outcome of a divorce that impacts your children are the child custody terms. Receiving full custody of your child means the other parent will not have control over the child and may not see them as often. With the best interest of the child in mind, some form of joint custody is preferred in divorce (assuming both parents are able and willing to care for the child).
