Helping You Favorably Resolve Your Family Law Issues

Family law involves all the issues related to divorce, legal custody and placement, child support, maintenance and property division. It is one of the most emotional and financially difficult matters you will face in your lifetime.

The lawyers at the office of Schmidt & Grace Attorneys at Law have been substantially involved in handling family law matters for more than 60 years in central Wisconsin, including Wisconsin Rapids, Marshfield and Stevens Point. As a result, we are very capable of dealing with all the problems you will face in these matters.

We Are Determined Attorneys Who Are On Your Side

Our divorce lawyers approach each and every case with a heightened level of sensitivity and compassion. You and your family have very specific goals and concerns, and we make it our primary objective to help you reach them.

Since 1949, our firm has been committed to providing personalized legal services and effective representation to all our clients in the following areas of family law:

  • Divorce: We can protect your best interests throughout the divorce process and work toward an outcome you can live with.
  • Child custody and visitation: Battles over child custody and visitation can be fierce. However, having experienced legal representation can help prevent problems.
  • Valuation and division of property: We can help ensure that your marital assets are divided equitably.
  • Child support and maintenance: We are experienced with the Wisconsin child support guidelines, and can help you with any issues. Additionally, we can aggressively represent your interests, whether you are seeking spousal support or are being asked to support your former spouse.
  • Paternity: We help fathers wishing to assert their custody and visitation rights.
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements: Whether you wish to protect premarital assets or address financial concerns in the event of a divorce, we can help.
  • Adoptions: We can ensure that the process of welcoming a new child into your family goes as smoothly as possible.
  • Modifications: If significant changes have occurred in your post-divorce life, you may be entitled to a modification.

We are also available to help facilitate a legal separation. This is similar to traditional divorce, however neither spouse can remarry. It is designed for people whose religion bars them from getting a regular divorce. While there may be several unique reasons behind seeking a legal separation, many people incorrectly claim to be legally separated. In reality, they are simply going through a divorce and not living together.

Compassionate, Resourceful And Thorough Legal Representation

We understand all of the possible ramifications of a divorce. Our lawyers are not only compassionate, but resourceful. We have access to other professionals who can aid in your efforts to obtain fair and full arrangements, orders and judgments. We routinely consult with appraisers, accountants, counselors and psychologists, all of whom can prove indispensable in presenting the strongest case possible.
