Family & Divorce Law

Working to Help You Resolve Your Family Law Issues

When facing the end of your marriage, you need trusted counsel to answer your questions, educate you on the process and pursue resolutions while focusing on the best interests of your children. For over 25 years, attorney Ward D. Phillips of Leece & Phillips Law Offices, S.C., has represented clients in specific areas of his family law practice, including:

  • Divorce

  • Child custody and placement

  • Child support

  • Maintenance, also known as alimony

  • Children in need of protection and services

  • Juvenile actions

  • Estate planning, including wills and trusts

Our firm's co-founder devotes his Walworth County-based legal practice almost exclusively to family law. He takes the time to talk to his clients so they understand the substance of the divorce process and the need for legal representation.

What to Expect

First, there is a "cooling off" period of 120 days, giving you time to get the facts you need and prepare for a process that, at times, will be emotional. Court procedures can be confusing and there are pitfalls that must be avoided.

Expect to attend at least two hearings at a minimum, providing documentation and financial information that the court expects. Securing legal advice prior to those court appearances is paramount. You have important choices to make and you do not want to have regrets later.
