Our firm is located in Hartland, Wisconsin, but we serve the entire surrounding area. Reach out to us today to learn more about Seufert Law, LLC’s child custody and support legal services.
In Wisconsin, there are two main types of child custody cases:
1. Initial determination – during a standard child custody case, Attorney Seufert will walk you through the process from start to finish. He will go over your legal custody options, the possible physical placement (allocation of time) scenarios, and the financial responsibilities that each parent is expected to assume (for example, payment of child support, contribution toward variable costs and health insurance, and allocation of tax benefits).
2. Post-judgment litigation – In many cases, after the initial determination/final judgment is entered, there is a need to return to court to modify the court order with respect to legal custody, physical placement, or child support. If there has been a substantial change of circumstances from the previous court order, the court will examine the family situation to determine whether a change is in the best interest of the child. The Court can modify child custody and child support orders up until a child is emancipated.
This is a lot to take in, but don’t worry – Attorney Seufert is here for you throughout the entire process. Call 262-361-8298 to schedule a consultation at our Hartland, WI office.
