A parenting plan is a written blueprint for how you and your soon to be ex-spouse will care for your children once you’re no longer in the same household. The best parenting plans are those that are mutually agreed upon. Contrary to popular belief, you CAN co-parent effectively, and the right parenting plan can make all the difference for a healthy and functional co-parenting relationship.

When anger during a divorce is a problem, the best response is often no response. This may seem easier said than done, as opportunities for conflict can arise frequently during the divorce process, but there are ways to reduce tension and streamline time, energy, and costs. We've put together a list of techniques - read more on our website by following the link.

Co-parenting can be tough - we all know that. While it's not always a walk in the park, there are certainly ways to make it easier on everyone involved: you, your co-parent, and (maybe most importantly) your kids. The most important thing to remember is that co-parenting lasts the rest of your life, far past your child's 18th birthday, and the actions you take in their youth will form the relationship you maintain throughout their life. Click the link to read more.

Clients with a difficult co-parent often mark time in relation to how far away they are from their child’s 18th birthday. They phrase it like they’re serving a prison sentence. “Thank God I only have 6 more years of this crap!” they will say if they have a 12-year-old.

“How long will my divorce take?” is surprisingly similar to asking “How far is it to Green Bay?” In both scenarios, the answer depends on two things: where you start, and your perspective. From Milwaukee, Green Bay is 116.7 miles, or “about an hour and a half.” Both answers are correct. The miles in distance will never change — but the time it takes can be influenced by a million factors.

If you're contemplating divorce, you likely already know how tough it can be to know where to start. The internet can be an extensive resource, filled with do's and don'ts, lists and articles, and enough bullet points to make your head spin. Just the thought of divorce is overwhelming - so let's keep it simple for you! We'll start with important documents.

Have you ever been concerned that your spouse exhibits narcissistic behaviors? Maybe you've done some reading, or spoken with friends or your own therapist about your worries. However, there is a big difference - especially in court - between a diagnosed case of narcissistic personality disorder, and (as it may appear from the outside) a mutually toxic relationship. While we sympathize greatly with our clients who are dealing with these situations, sometimes the hard truth is that it's tougher than you think to get that point across to the court. Follow the link to read more on narcissistic tendencies in spouses.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT SPOTLIGHT: GALS INSTITUTE & GALS ON THE GO

On Sunday, May 1st, we were proud to watch Gals on the Go Project ring in the spring with their Bloom and Grow fundraiser, and Attorney Maura Falk herself was on the scene to volunteer. Gals on the Go Project is organized by Gals Institute LLC in Delafield, self-defined as “a collaborative group of licensed clinicians providing therapy services, resiliency-building workshops, one-day events, and support groups in the Lake Country Area”. All in attendance at the Bloom and Grow event were invited to participate in such activities as journal making, staged photo ops, a silent auction, and more for kids and parents alike. While parents attended a luncheon with keynote speakers Deanna Marincic (founder of the Gals Institute) and Wendy Evans (board member for Gals on the Go), kids got the opportunity to move around an interactive playground with exercises like a dig site, glitter jars, self-decorated planters with seeds, a stress ball creation station, and more – all designed to help teach coping strategies and resiliency in intuitive and creative ways. For those who were not able to attend the fundraiser but are still interested in the value of kids’ mental health and wellness, Gals on the Go has created a DIY workshop box designed specifically for kids to complete over a six-week period. The subscription box is delivered to your door, comes with a mentor that your 4th-7th grader meets with online weekly, and activities to complete that are similar to those featured throughout the interactive playground. Gals on the Go aims to assist in “building resiliency, self-esteem, and learning healthy coping strategies”.

For more information on the Gals Institute, Gals on the Go Project, and how to sign up for your own workshop box, please visit the Gals Institute website linked here (https://www.galsinstitute.com) to find more ways to support this great organization!

Custody disputes are never easy, and parents often want to know how to obtain sole custody of their children. It can be frustrating when you as a parent feel that your co-parent is unfit or unable to share in joint decision-making due to certain actions or aspects of their life. However, not all arguments will hold up in court, and there is a presumption of joint custody in the state of Wisconsin.

Follow the link to find out three things you may be surprised to find out the courts don't necessarily care about when it comes to arguing for full custody. As always, feel free to share your thoughts and reach out with questions!

One of the most common questions at the beginning of the divorce process is "how much will this cost me?" Of course, there is no one right answer to this, as each case comes with its own nuances and complexities. You may have heard the phrase, "divorce is expensive because it's worth it", and part of an attorney's duty is to ensure the process is worth it, as efficiently (and, ideally, cost-effectively) as possible.

Follow the link below to read more about what costs you can and cannot control during your divorce case. Feel free to save and share the attached graphic for quick reference, and as always, give us your thoughts: agreements, disagreements, questions, and concerns are always welcome here.
