Waukesha Wisconsin Divorce Lawyers
At D’Angelo & Jones, we understand the stress and emotional toll that accompanies a divorce. We have been helping clients throughout the Waukesha-Milwaukee area with divorce issues for three generations. While we know we cannot entirely eliminate the stress associated with a divorce, we can work with you to tailor a plan that will meet your family law goals with as little stress as possible.
We begin with a confidential consultation to review your circumstances (including contested or uncontested divorce), the parties involved (spouse, children, etc.) and the potential issues that may arise from the divorce (including custody, support, child placement, maintenance and division of marital property).
Next we educate you on your options, which may include:
- Divorce Litigation – going to trial to litigate any unresolved issues between the parties.
- Divorce Settlement – drafting a divorce settlement agreement that resolves all issues between the parties concerning the divorce.
- Collaborative Divorce – a mediation process involving lawyers where the parties enter into mediation to resolve their differences, with the understanding that the lawyers involved are disqualified from representing their respective parties if the mediation process fails and litigation is required. With collaborative divorce, mental health professionals and financial specialists are assigned to each spouse. The lawyers participating must be certified in collaborative divorce.
- Cooperative Divorce – where the parties agree to act civilly toward each other and rationally attempt to resolve their differences, with the understanding that the lawyers involved will continue to represent their client’s interests should the divorce require adversarial litigation. Patricia Jones D’Angelo, Christine Davies D’Angelo and Katherine J. De Lorenzo are members of the Divorce Cooperation Institute, Inc.
Finally, we represent your interests to the best of our ability, always keeping you in the loop and advising you of your options as they develop.
If you are contemplating divorce or have been served with divorce papers, you want an experienced attorney who will provide outstanding personal service, understands what you are going through, knows the law and the legal process and can explain your options to you in plain English.
