3 tips for divorcing fathers in Wisconsin

When it comes to divorce, conflict is almost always a given. One of the most at-risk areas for conflict between two spouses in a divorce is that of parenting and all matters related to the children. For fathers, this can be an even greater stress because fathers' rights are not always at the forefront in a divorce proceeding.

Fathers in Wisconsin do have rights, but it is important that they are exercised. If you are a father facing divorce, a proactive approach may ensure that your rights are recognized. Here are three tips for divorcing fathers in Wisconsin to get you started down the right path:

1. Remember that children need shared parenting

Shared parenting is important. You can and should assert your rights when it comes to joint custody and visitation. Studies have shown that children who spend equal time with each parent in a shared parenting arrangement often have better outcomes in life.

2. Be proactive as you go through your divorce

It is much easier to make equitable agreements and reach favorable judgments regarding shared parenting, child custody and visitation during the actual divorce proceedings, as opposed to trying to correct discrepancies after agreements or judgments have been made. While you always have the option to modify an existing custody order in Wisconsin, if you are proactive upfront, you can save complications later on.

3. Do not try to handle things on your own

You should not face the difficulties and challenges of divorce on your own. In addition to a qualified family law attorney to help assert your rights in Wisconsin, you should also seek out other sources of support. There are many fathers' rights support groups that can help you by providing social support as well as useful resources to help you move through the divorce process and ensure your rights as a father are protected and enforced.
