Establishing paternity is crucial for various legal matters, including child custody, visitation rights, child support, and inheritance. Whether you’re a mother seeking to establish paternity for child support purposes or a father looking to assert your parental rights, M&M Law, LLP here to guide you through the process with expertise and care.  Even after paternity is established, determining child custody/placement, child support, and other issues can be very challenging to navigate on your own.

We have extensive knowledge and experience with Wisconsin’s paternity laws and procedures, and will work tirelessly to protect your rights and achieve a favorable outcome. From negotiating paternity agreements to representing you in court, we’ll provide personalized attention and steadfast advocacy every step of the way.

  • Child Custody/Placement. Determining (or revising) custody and placement of your children can be a very emotional process.  Particularly in paternity cases, it is very difficult for parents to agree on a visitation schedule.  If parents cannot agree, the first step is typically to go to mediation through your county’s Family Court Program.  If mediation is unsuccessful or inappropriate for your case, the court may appoint a Guardian ad Litem, who is an attorney appointed to represent the children’s best interests.  No matter how your case progresses, we have the knowledge and experience to guide you through the process.
  • Child Support.  In Wisconsin, child support calculations are primarily determined by a statutory formula outlined in the state’s child support guidelines. These guidelines consider various factors (such as the placement arrangement, the parents’ incomes, and the number of children) to ensure that child support payments are fair and consistent across different cases.  

At M&M Law, LLP, we understand the sensitive nature of paternity matters.  We’ll listen to your concerns, address your questions, and provide the support you need to navigate this challenging time.

Even if paternity was established long ago, you may encounter a situation where the terms of your court order need to be revised.  As children grow older or family dynamics evolve, the initial placement/support orders may no longer suit the best interests of the children or parents involved. We are here to help you through that process too.
