Family Law

At Muter Law Office, we work with individuals who are contemplating divorce or struggling with other family law issues, such as paternity, child custody, child support, and spousal support or alimony. Attorney Misty Muter helps clients work through these sensitive issues and counsels clients on how to most effectively safeguard their interests and the interests of their children and cope with the emotional challenges they may encounter.

A significant part of our family law practice deals with helping individuals through a divorce and confronting the legal, emotional, and financial challenges that it may bring. It is important to consult with a Wisconsin divorce attorney early in the process to protect yourself and your family, both emotionally and financially. Consulting with a divorce attorney does not mean you have to get divorced or that you have decided on divorce, but it allows you to have the essential tools and knowledge to make an informed decision. All consultations are confidential and private.

When clients come to us, our goal is to help them through the legal process of terminating their marriage in the least traumatizing way. We work with clients through a collaborative process to the extent possible, avoiding the costly and emotionally-trying court system. Unfortunately, however, not all dissolutions are amicable, and we have the expertise to vigorously protect your children, assets, and interests in court.

In addition, if you are not happy with the outcome of the decision that was reached in your case or if your circumstances have changed, we can counsel you on the legal options that are available to you. If a dispute arises regarding a provision in the original divorce decree or if matters arise after the judgment has been entered, we can walk you through the process of seeking a legal remedy. At Muter Law Office, we can also work to modify an order or award of spousal support, child support, child custody, or parenting time.

We believe in helping couples come to favorable terms that all can agree upon. With compassion and professionalism, Misty has the unique skills and capacity to help families reconcile differences and restore working relationships. Contact our office today.
