Factors that may influence a divorce settlement

Ideally, a person will try to resolve a divorce in a timely manner. In some cases, this may mean Wisconsin residents opt to have their divorce settled with the help of a mediator. Regardless of how an individual chooses to go through this process, it is important to come to mediation or other negotiation sessions prepared. This means having a clear understanding of what that person needs out of a settlement.

Divorce support teams

When a couple in Wisconsin divorces, both spouses are in a vulnerable position. The end of a marriage is a major, and sometimes traumatic, change that can affect various aspects of an individual's life. That's why assembling a support team is very important.

Factors that may lead to divorce

Most couples in Wisconsin get married without thinking their marriage will end in divorce. However, the fact is that divorce occurs often and may even be predictable. Researchers have found that there are several factors that predict future divorces.

How shared parenting benefits children

In 80 percent of child custody cases that are decided by a judge, the mother receives physical custody. However, research suggests that both mom and dad should play a role in raising their kids. Generally, a child in Wisconsin should only be kept away from a parent if that parent is abusive or negligent in any way.

How divorced parents can create consistency for their children

When Wisconsin parents of young children get a divorce, it typically means that their children will spend time in two different households. This may mean that the children will likely experience two sets of house rules. One way to ensure a certain level of consistency is for the parents to talk about the rules that they would like to see enforced. Depending on how the child is, he or she may also be given a say in what the rules will be.

When mediation might not work

Wisconsin residents going through a divorce might be wondering about mediation. This is intended to be a way for couples to resolve issues and form a settlement agreement without needing litigation. While mediation can allow some couples to save time and money, other couples are less likely to benefit from this approach.
