Practical Solutions And Strong Advocacy In Divorce

Ending a marriage can present difficult challenges emotionally, financially and logistically. You may feel like your life has been turned upside down, yet the daily demands of work, children and other responsibilities continue to require your attention.

The lawyer you choose to work with in divorce can make a significant difference, not only in the outcome of your case, but also in how effectively and efficiently the process is completed. At Leece & Phillips Law Offices, S.C., in Elkhorn, we emphasize a personal approach to divorce that makes a noticeable difference to our clients, from the initial consultation through the resolution of your divorce.

What Personalization Looks Like

What does our personal approach mean for you? For starters, a client-friendly environment in which to hold an in-depth, completely confidential conversation at the outset about your primary concerns and objectives. After all, how you envision your post-divorce life will play a significant role in the strategy we develop to address the key decisions that must be made. These include:

  • Child custody and sharing parental responsibilities
  • Child support
  • Division of marital assets and debt
  • Spousal support

Understanding The Process

Often the most difficult part of starting a divorce is the overwhelming amount of choices and fear of the unknown. Understanding the divorce process and local court procedures and having that explained to you ahead of time will help reduce this initial stress.

Reviewing Goals And Setting Expectations

We often represent clients who want to move away with a child, or who face more challenging issues such as domestic abuse or a desire to pursue sole custody. Attorney Ward D. Phillips has 30 years of legal experience. Because he devotes 80 percent or more of his time to family law matters, he is thoroughly knowledgeable about Wisconsin family law statutes and what factors the courts consider when an agreement between two parties cannot be reached through negotiation or mediation.

Resolving disputes often requires prioritizing objectives and reaching compromises. We help our clients set realistic expectations. Resolving disputes in divorce without litigating reduces stress, saves money and allows both parties to retain more control over the decisions that must be made.

We work to reach fair agreements outside of court whenever possible. However, Mr. Phillips is an experienced litigator who is always prepared to advocate on clients' behalf in court when a fair agreement cannot be reached.
