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

If you and your spouse agree on key divorce terms like asset division, child custody and spousal support, an uncontested divorce allows you to end the marriage without contentious court battles. The streamlined process is typically faster, less expensive and less emotionally taxing.

Contested Divorce

When spouses cannot agree, contested divorce resolves disputed issues in court like property division, child custody, spousal support and more. Though contested divorce can be adversarial, our attorneys advocate skillfully for your interests before a judge. Contested cases often take longer and cost more.

Mediated Divorce

Mediation involves both parties meeting with a neutral mediator to mutually agree on divorce terms. It encourages communication and compromise to satisfy both spouses and allows you to play an active role in shaping the final terms of the divorce.


An annulment legally voids a marriage as if it never occurred. Strict criteria must be met, like fraud, lack of consummation, bigamy or incapacity. An annulment terminates all marital rights and responsibilities.

Factors That May Affect Your Divorce

  • Length of the marriage
  • Children
  • Jointly owned assets or debts
  • Income disparity
  • Business ownership
  • Employment status
  • History of domestic violence, substance abuse or criminal history

Family Law Services in Racine

We offer support and legal guidance in Racine for:

Child Custody

In Wisconsin, child custody is divided into two parts, legal custody and physical placement. Legal custody refers to the authority to make important decisions about the child’s healthcare, education and other important issues, while physical placement relates to the actual time spent with each parent.

During a divorce, parents have the option to choose joint legal and physical custody or pursue sole custody. Wisconsin courts enter each divorce case assuming joint custody, where both parents are involved in the child’s upbringing, is in the best interest of the child.

It’s important to note modifications to placement can be made if there is a need to change the legal arrangements for the child’s residence and care. This may involve adjusting living situations or visitation schedules for changes in the parents’ circumstances or the child’s best interests. Follow the appropriate legal procedures and provide compelling reasons for change to ensure a successful modification.

Child Support

Child support is a critical aspect of ensuring the financial well-being of children following a divorce. The state of Wisconsin has guidelines in place to help determine the appropriate amount of support based on factors like parental income, number of children and additional expenses related to healthcare, education or special needs.

Use our Wisconsin child support calculator to estimate your monthly payments based on primary or shared placement schedules. Divergent Law is here to provide the resources and assistance you need to ensure your children’s financial needs are met.

Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation provides couples with a constructive and collaborative approach to ending their marriage. Unlike traditional litigation, mediation offers a cooperative environment where couples can work together to address sensitive issues like property division, child custody and financial matters.

By choosing mediation, couples can often save valuable time and financial resources compared to a lengthy court battle. Mediation allows couples to maintain control over the outcome of their divorce, rather than leaving important decisions in the hands of a judge.


Establishing paternity is an important step for both fathers and children in divorce cases, offering a legal framework to ensure rights and responsibilities are properly recognized and fulfilled. Whether through voluntary acknowledgment or court-ordered testing, establishing paternity is essential for various reasons, including child support, custody, visitation rights and access to important benefits.

High Net Worth

Divorce cases involving high-net-worth individuals present unique challenges requiring specialized legal knowledge and experience. Divergent Family Law’s Racine divorce attorneys have the necessary expertise to effectively handle the complex financial matters and substantial assets involved in high-net-worth divorces.

In high-net-worth divorces, determining fair spousal support agreements can be particularly complex. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who will work diligently to secure favorable outcomes for our clients, taking into account factors like income disparity, lifestyle considerations and future financial needs.


Divorces involving active-duty military members or veterans present unique challenges demanding specialized legal expertise. Frequent relocation, overseas deployments and complex division of military benefits are just a few of the issues requiring careful consideration. Our attorneys are deeply familiar with the regulations governing military pensions, healthcare, housing allowances and other benefits, and we fight to ensure our clients receive their entitled benefits.

Jurisdictional issues can further complicate military divorces, especially when spouses live apart across state lines or abroad. Our team of Racine divorce lawyers is well-equipped to navigate multidistrict challenges and pursue the optimal legal venue for military divorce cases.
