Milwaukee Family Lawyers Assisting Clients with Post-Divorce Modifications
Even after a divorce has been finalized and court orders have been entered, circumstances can change. At Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP, we help families transition into this next phase of their lives with sensitive, attentive care. Experienced in a wide range of legal matters, including post-divorce modifications, our attorneys protect your best interests and always put your family first.
Modifications of Spousal or Child Support Orders
When a supporting party loses their job, a receiving party experiences an increase in income, or financial circumstances otherwise change, modifications of spousal support or child support orders may be necessary. Our attorneys offer assertive legal representation for those seeking modifications to their child or spousal support orders. We ensure all factors are considered and work hard to achieve the most favorable outcome in your case.
Changes to Child Custody or Visitation
As children grow, their needs often change. If parents can agree that those changes facilitate the need for an update to a child custody or visitation order, modification may be granted. However, these matters are rarely quite so simple. Instead, one parent often feels that a change is necessary, but the other disagrees. Contention and bitter arguments are often the result.
Parents who wish to pursue a post-divorce modification against the other parent's wishes must be able to prove that a change is in the best interest of the child. Examples might include proof of neglect or abuse, or a failure to comply with an existing order. But, even with proof, these battles are complex and emotionally exhausting. Our attorneys can serve as an aggressive advocate and will do everything we can to help you protect your children from further neglect and abuse.
On the other end of the spectrum, there are parents who would go to any lengths to have the custody scales tip in their favor. Some may even go so far as to wrongfully accuse another parent of neglect or abuse. When this happens, it is critical that the defending parent have a skilled and aggressive attorney. Such matters can impact more than just the time you have with your child - it can result in criminal charges against you. Our team can protect your rights as a parent in a court of law.
