Grandparents' visitation rights and the law

When a couple with children divorces, the legal results that follow can often negatively impact the grandparents of those children. Some couples simply cannot reach a consensus regarding visitation rights of grandparents, which can naturally create an emotionally painful situation. Yet Wisconsin law protects the rights of grandparents when it comes to divorce with children, and is able to intervene when a couple cannot reach an agreement regarding child visitation hours.

Legal custody and physical placement

Matters of legal custody (sometimes known as parental responsibility) and physical placement (sometimes known as time-sharing) in a divorce are generally settled by an agreement and court order. In a Wisconsin divorce, a court determines custody rights by making findings regarding the best interests of the child. The court may also adopt an agreement made by the parents. Due to various parenting styles, it is not always clear to the parties of a divorce what constitutes the best interests of their own child.

How are prescription drug possession charges dealt?

Wisconsin has some pretty harsh penalties against drug possession that can leave you high and dry if you get charged and convicted. We at the Mayer Law Office, LLC, work to highlight what you should know about these possession laws, which can help you understand your position better.

The truth about domestic assault

Violence and assaults are widely known to occur all over the United States, but domestic violence is a topic that often goes undiscussed. Even though every state in the U.S. enforces domestic violence restraining order laws, the details of a restraining order can vary depending on jurisdiction. In regards to domestic violence in particular, Wisconsin enforces The Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence to help protect those involved in abuse.
