Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to hire Muter Law Office, LLC?

The initial consultation is free. If you decide to hire Muter Law Office, LLC, it will be necessary to pay an Advanced Minimum Fee. The amount will depend upon the seriousness of the offense and the amount of time the lawyer estimates it will take to achieve the client's goals. In an effort to keep the initial attorney's fees affordable, Muter Law Office, LLC and the client may agree to limit the scope of the representation, such as through the negotiations stage. If such a limited scope agreement is entered, the client can still decide to retain Muter Law Office, LLC, for services beyond the negotiations stage. However, a new fee agreement would be entered into along with a deposit for another Advanced Minimum Fee. If, at the end of the case, there is money left over from the Advanced Minimum Fee, Muter Law Office, LLC, will return any unused portion of the Advanced Minimum Fee.

What are the grounds for a divorce?

In Wisconsin, there is no need to show wrongful behavior on the part of either spouse in order for a couple to obtain a divorce. The only requirement is that there has been an irretrievable breakdown in the marriage. While Wisconsin is a "no-fault" divorce state and marital misconduct will not be considered in awarding spousal support, child support, or child custody, in certain situations the fault of one party leading to the breakdown of the marriage can be considered, for example, if it affects the children or involved economic waste. Therefore, it is important to have dependable legal representation during divorce.

How long does the process take?

The amount of time it takes to finalize a divorce varies widely depending on the circumstances of the parties. Uncontested divorce proceedings can be resolved in a matter of several months, while highly contested cases may take up to a year or more. Whether there are children born to the marriage and the amount of property that the couple owned are factors that may affect the length and complexity of the divorce proceeding. The more parties are willing to work together to reconcile their differences, the less time and money will be expended resolving such disagreements in court.

How much will it cost me to be represented by an attorney?

Because each case has a unique set of circumstances and facts, legal fees for representing you in your family court action will be discussed during your consultation with our office. However, the overall cost of legal fees will largely depend upon the ability of the parties to work together to resolve the divorce action in the best interests of all involved. If reconciliation is ruled out as an option, then it is important that both parties stay focused on obtaining an equitable separation, which will drastically reduce the length of the process and overall fees involved.
