Guiding You Through Divorce

There are no "quick divorces" in Wisconsin. The process was designed to give couples a chance to think about their options and do what is best for their families. In order to take advantage of this time and come up with a plan that truly fits your needs, you need an experienced lawyer on your side.

I am attorney Donald Fraker, and from my Mequon law office I help guide clients across Southeast Wisconsin through the divorce process. Give me a call today for a free initial consultation about your specific situation.

Helping You Take The Right Steps

Once you file for divorce, you will have at least 120 days before you can get a settlement approved or take your case to trial in order to obtain the divorce judgment. During that period, you will have several important steps to complete, including:

  • Addressing important aspects of your situation on a temporary basis during the waiting period, including financial obligations and child custody.
  • Gathering important information, such as the value of your property and debts. You will also have to fill out financial disclosure documents.
  • Attending required classes designed to assist you in understanding how to help your kids cope with the divorce process.
  • Negotiating toward a settlement and/or preparing for trial.

Are you interested in mediation? If so, I will help you find the right mediator and set up the process for you. If you are unable to reach a settlement with the other party, I will prepare your divorce for trial.
