Waukesha Child Custody Lawyers

Romantic relationships may end, but parenting relationships last a lifetime. At Walden & Schuster, S.C., our attorneys are aggressive litigators. However, we know that litigation can often cause additional hurt and anger, and result in the further breakdown of parenting relationships.

That is why we take a smart approach to litigation. Our attorneys do everything in their power to reach mutually beneficial agreements through negotiation and discussion. We only initiate litigation where necessary to protect our clients' and their children's interests.

Located in Waukesha, our firm represents clients throughout Wisconsin who are involved in child custody or support disputes.

Preserving Parent-Child Relationships

In Wisconsin, there is a presumption that children benefit from having substantial, quality time with both parents. Thus, judges are required to make custody determinations that maximize a child's time with both parents. Judges also consider other factors when making custody decisions, including the ages of the children, current parent-child relationships, parenting abilities and any acts of domestic violence.

At Walden & Schuster, S.C. our lawyers work closely with clients to understand the personalities and family dynamics involved, as well as the needs of the children. Together, we develop parenting plans that lay out custody and visitation schedules, ensure children are well cared for and parent-child bonds are respected.

As children grow and families evolve, there are infinite possibilities for potential argument. While drafting parenting plans, our attorneys are constantly looking ahead to identify and address potential future areas of strife, including holidays, summer breaks, vacations, school events and how changes in either parent's schedule will be decided. We also include guidance regarding how education and health care decisions will be made. By addressing these issues upfront, we are often able to save our clients the time and costs of future litigation.

Brookfield Child Support Attorneys

Raising a child is expensive. At Walden & Schuster, S.C. we help parents get the support they need to pay for child care, health care costs, school activities and other daily living expenses.

In Wisconsin, child support is calculated through a formula. This formula considers many factors, including each parent's income, how many nights per week children spend with each parent and how many other children each parent is supporting.
