Providing Solutions for Your Divorce

Divorce can be fairly simple, or it can be extremely complex. With decades of experience, we offer creative solutions to address our clients' unique needs.

We are prepared to guide you through the process to resolve every aspect of your divorce, including:

  • Marital property division, including division of businesses and pensions

  • Child custody and visitation

  • Child support

  • Domestic dispute resolution

Our experience covers both family law and criminal law. If your divorce involves domestic violence issues, we can represent your interests in all of your legal proceedings.

The outcome of your divorce will affect your future. We will work with you to reach a successful outcome. If your divorce cannot be resolved in negotiations or mediation, we will not shy away from litigation.

Dividing Assets, Accounts And Debts In Divorce

Everything that you acquired together and even assets that you owned prior to marriage are potentially on the table, including:

  • The marital residence and other real estate

  • Pensions and retirement accounts

  • A business or professional practice

  • Stocks, investments and savings

  • Vehicles, valuables and furnishings

  • Jointly acquired debts and loans

The first order of business is to determine which assets are subject to division and which are separate property for purposes of divorce. This may involve forensic accountants to uncover hidden assets or accounts. Then we have to come to agreement on the value of assets. We work with certified public accountants (CPAs), business valuation experts, appraisers and other professionals to arrive at accurate figures.

Not All Assets Are Divided in Half

It is important to understand that your marital wealth is not necessarily divided in half. A judge must consider 13 statutory factors, from the financial positions of each party to career sacrifices and contributions to the marriage. Our Kenosha divorce attorney goes beyond the equitable distribution statute to anticipate spousal support and child support, the possibility that one spouse may end up in bankruptcy, and ramifications for retirement and estate planning.

How Attorney Ward Can Help

Attorney Ward can offer creative solutions for a practical property settlement, and he is not afraid to go to court to keep the other side honest and to stand up for your rightful share in asset division. He handles complex and high-asset divorces, but he is accessible to anyone seeking an edge or needing protection in these important proceedings.
