Waukesha County divorce attorney asset division

For the most part, the divorce process itself is not difficult; if a couple has only been married for a couple of years, does not have children, and does not have many assets, the process could be completed in a matter of weeks. However, most divorcing couples have been married for at least a couple of years, meaning they are more likely to have gathered and intermingled more assets, which can make the divorce process longer and much more tedious. The more assets you and your spouse have to deal with, the more complex your divorce case will become. High asset divorces bring their own set of issues and difficulties to the process. Below are a few of the most common mistakes that couples make during a high asset divorce in Wisconsin. 

  1. Not Investigating for Possible Hidden Assets

One of the requirements at the beginning of the divorce process is that both you and your spouse fully disclose all of your financial assets. However, not everyone is truthful when it comes to disclosing their assets.

Each year, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) collects statistical information about various types of crimes and publishes a summarizing report about crime in the United States. Violent crime in particular has decreased significantly across the United States as a whole over the past 20 years or so. However, violent crime still remains an issue across the country. According to the latest data available from the FBI, Wisconsin reported more than 17,000 occurrences of violent crime throughout the state in 2019. Wisconsin takes violent criminal offenses, such as murder, aggravated assault, sexual assault, and robbery, very seriously and convictions for any of those could result in severe sentences.

After the excitement of Christmas has settled and the year finally comes to a close, many people use this time to reflect on the past 365 days and how they can improve themselves. The majority of people end up going with the ever-popular New Year’s resolution, whose goals range widely, from living a healthier lifestyle to spending more time with family. For recently divorced or separated parents, the beginning of a new year is as good a time as any to make a commitment to be the best parent you can be. Making a plan and sticking to it can be an effective way to improve your co-parenting relationship with your child’s other parent. Here are a few strategies and tips for the New Year to help you and your co-parent work together, rather than against one another:

  • Keep your conversations focused around the children. One of the most difficult things to do after the divorce is to separate your feelings about the divorce from your attitude and behavior when it comes to co-parenting. Instead of focusing on the pain or negatives, stay focused on what matters -- your children. Remember, everything you do when it comes to co-parenting should be for your kids, with their best interests in mind.

Oconomowoc criminal defense attorney community supervision

Not all crimes are created equally, so it goes without saying that not all crimes will be punished equally either. There are actually a variety of options when it comes to sentencing a person for committing a crime in Wisconsin. The most obvious punishment that a person thinks of for a criminal would be jail time, but many studies have found that spending time in jail does not actually provide much in the way of rehabilitative services, especially when it comes to juveniles and other low-level offenders. In some situations, a judge may believe it is appropriate to sentence an offender to a type of community supervision. This type of sentence allows the offender to complete his or her sentence outside of jail while supervised by the Department of Corrections (DOC).

Types of Community Supervision

In general, community supervision is the broad term used to refer to the sentences offenders serve while they are outside of prison. There are various types of community supervision, including:

For many cultures and religions, the month of December is a joyous time during which many celebrations take place and time is spent surrounded by family and friends. For those who are going through a divorce or who have recently gone through a divorce, the holiday season can be challenging in more ways than one. Holidays are a time that is meant to be spent with family, so it can leave those who have recently separated feeling lonely and depressed. Even though every divorce can be stressful at any point throughout the year, your divorce does not have to take all of the cheer out of your holiday season. 

Making the Holidays Merry and Bright

This year is unlike any other in recent times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is likely that many people are struggling to get excited about the upcoming holidays, and if you are going through a divorce, that only compounds the feeling of anxiety and fear. However, with a positive attitude, you can look ahead to a better 2021.
