Higgins Law Office Fights for Your Rights in Child Custody Cases in Madison, WI
Securing what’s fair for you and what's best for your child’s future through physical placement
When physical placement or legal custody becomes an issue in your family law or divorce case, the Higgins Law Office will safeguard your parental rights to raise your child in a happy and healthy environment and maximize your time with your children. If you are married with children, Wisconsin law dictates that you and your spouse have equal rights to legal and physical custody. Our firm helps you work out an agreement with your spouse to ensure your child’s relationship with both parents remains strong. We also help clients who are unmarried and involved in a physical placement or legal custody dispute to make sure they are awarded the maximum amount of placement possible.
In Wisconsin, the court can order the following types of custody for your child:
- Sole legal custody — This refers to a custody agreement where one parent has the legal authority to make decisions based on what they think is in the best interests of the child. This is very rare.
- Joint custody — When a court orders joint custody, both parents play a part in making decisions for their children. Joint custody is the norm.
For married couples with children, child custody and placement agreements in Wisconsin are reached during typical divorce procedures. At the Higgins Law Office, I guide you toward a custody plan that is in your best interest.
However, if you are unmarried with a child, the child’s father can file a petition to share physical placement and legal custody. Our skilled child custody and divorce attorney can mediate disputes and, if necessary, bring your fight to court to protect your rights to legal custody and physical placement.
