Waukesha County child support lawyer

In any divorce that involves children, it is likely the case will also include child support. Many parents wonder how they will continue to support themselves and their children after a divorce, especially because they will be essentially running a household on a single income. To help mitigate some of the costs of raising a child, child support is typically ordered to be paid by the parent who spends less time with the child, although a handful of other factors also go into calculating child support. No two child support cases are the same, which is why it is important to understand how Wisconsin law specifies that child support is calculated.

Sole Custody Cases

Child support in sole custody cases is typically easier to calculate than in shared custody cases. When one parent has sole custody of the child, the child is with the non-custodial parent for less than 92 overnight visits per year. Typically, this amounts to spending every other weekend with the non-custodial parent. Wisconsin uses a standard percentage model to calculate the amount the non-custodial parent owes to the custodial parent:

Going through a divorce can be one of the most confusing times in your life. You probably will make mistakes because of the slew of emotions a divorce can bring out. You may feel sad, angry, depressed, or even anxious over the divorce, which are all emotions that can distract you and prohibit you from thinking clearly. Even just a simple mistake made during your divorce can impact the rest of your life, which is why it is important to tread carefully in a divorce and seek experienced legal counsel.

The following are a few common mistakes you should avoid in your Wisconsin divorce:

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-24.jpgIf you and your spouse have decided to divorce, you may be wondering how to break the news to your children. The truth is informing your children that you are going to get a divorce is a difficult task. Fortunately, there are several ways you can reduce the pain and discomfort of this conversation and give your children the peace of mind they deserve. Here are five tips you should keep in mind when you tell your children about your divorce:

  1. Wait Until The Decision Has Been Finalized. You should avoid telling your children about your divorce unless you and your spouse have made a final decision. It is a good idea to wait until you have signed the divorce paperwork and custody documents and one of you is about to move out. 
  2. Make It Clear That It is Not Your Children’s Fault. Oftentimes, children wrongly believe that a divorce is their fault. You should make it a priority to make it clear to your children that your divorce has nothing to do with them. Simply tell them that you and your spouse grew apart or no longer get along well as a couple. 
  3. Refrain From Blaming. Although it may be easier said than done, you and your spouse should refrain from blaming one another in front of your children. If you blame one another, your children are more likely to choose sides and be upset with one, if not both, of you. 
  4. Do Not Share Inappropriate Information. The adult details of your divorce should stay between you and your spouse.  If you share inappropriate information with your children, they may resent you. Therefore, it is in your best interest to keep the conversation focused on your children rather than on you and your spouse. Let your children know when they will see you and your spouse, whether they will be moving, and other details that will affect their lives.
  5. Choose the Right Time. You should wait until you and your spouse are feeling emotionally stable and ready to support your children. Letting their teacher,  guidance counselor, and other close family members know before you tell them is a wise decision. Do not break the news to them before their birthday or another special occasion, or in a public setting.
