Divorce Proceedings

It is very important to be represented by an experienced attorney in divorce proceedings, since the decisions made by the courts will directly impact your financial future and your involvement with your children.  Divorces usually involve such important issues as placement and custody of children, determination of child support, determination of spousal support, division of savings and retirement accounts, division of real estate and business interests, and division of debt.  These are complex legal issues that require assistance of an experienced attorney.  If you are considering a divorce, or if your spouse has started a divorce action, please contact us for a free consultation.

Post-Divorce Proceedings

If you are divorced and have minor children, you may require legal assistance in modifying custody, placement and visitation, or child support orders.  Also, if you have an existing spousal support order, you may be entitled to modify that order based on changes in circumstances. Bykhovsky Law firm has the experience and knowledge of the law, to help you understand your rights.  If you are interested in modifying an existing divorce order, or your former spouse is attempting to modify an existing order, please contact us for a free consultation.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Wisconsin and many other States are community property States.  This means that a married couple will have shared ownership of most property, even if the property is in only one of the spouses’ names.  It also means that a married couple can be jointly responsible for debt, even if the debt is incurred by only one of the spouses.  There is a legal way to prevent this from happening.  Spouses can enter into prenuptial (before marriage) and postnuptial (after marriage) agreements that reclassify their property and debts as individual.  If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of a prenuptial or a postnuptial agreement, please contact us for a free consultation.
