Divorce Attorney

Family & Divorce Lawyer

Lawyer serving Hudson, River Falls, Balsam Lake, and New Richmond, Wisconsin

Family conflicts and difficulties can make it feel like your whole world is coming apart. That's why my commitment to you is as much about providing great personal service as it is representing you in negotiations or court. I will listen carefully to your family situation and address the issues at hand with empathy and complete confidentiality. From a simple annulment to a complex divorce action involving child custody and property division, you'll find I provide exceptional legal services.

Whether you are seeking a lawyer for a divorce or a solution to child custody issues, I will use my skills and knowledge to assist you in finding the optimal solution. This typically starts with a voluntary process called mediation, or collaborative divorce. During this process attorneys help both sides negotiate a settlement. However, if mediation and collaborative divorce fail to provide you with the desired outcome or are not appropriate for your situation, I will represent you at trial for divorce and help you resolve issues regarding child custody, alimony, child support, and parental rights.

All parents want the best for their children. For most families, navigating the realities of sharing their children’s time may represent one of the most emotionally charged aspects of divorce. If you’re looking for an effective way to provide your children with meaningful time with both parents after divorce, I can help your draw-up an agreement. If an agreement can not be reached, or if you would like to challenge a custody arrangement, I will fight for you and your rights.

Child Support Lawyer

Wisconsin law permits you to negotiate your own child support agreement. Your child support agreement does not have to follow Wisconsin child support guidelines – but it does have to work for your family. Only if a reasonable agreement cannot be reached, will a judge order child support based on the Wisconsin statute which includes the basic obligation (an amount reached by applying a statutory percentage) as well as an assignment of responsibility between the parents for health insurance and expenses beyond basic living costs. I can help you both arrive at a settlement that best meets both of your abilities and the needs of your children.

Alimony or Spousal Support Lawyer

View more information »

In Wisconsin, divorcing couples are able to negotiate spousal support payments on their own terms, outside of the court system. When determining alimony, it is important to look at both of your incomes and financial holdings, future earnings potential, age, health status, and many other factors. Spousal support may be court ordered if one of you are unable to afford the pre-separation standard of living or if one of you has been unemployed for a prolonged period of time and needs additional time, training, or education to reenter the workforce. Ultimately, the final decision will be made by a judge, unless you can come to an agreement together. I can help you reach a settlement together or negotiate on your behalf.

Types of Divorce


Work with a mediator to make decisions together — guided by your personal viewpoint, a mutual understanding of each other's view, and the reality that you now face together. The mediator provides objective, unbiased support to help you make the best possible decisions.

Collaborative Divorce

With the help of your lawyers, you work together to achieve a fair settlement. You may enlist the help of experts (e.g., financial specialists, child specialists, etc.). However, these specialists are neutral, their purpose being to explore the issues rather than to help one party over the other.

Litigated Divorce

Have a third party make the decisions for you. A settlement is reached through attorneys on a court determined schedule. If matters cannot be resolved, the case proceeds to a courtroom setting.
