Enlist Terese J. Singer to Resolve a Family Law Issue

Recognizing that family law matters can be emotionally fraught and contentious, Terese J. Singer is committed to providing her clients with compassionate but tenacious counsel. This approach has earned her significant acclaim among Milwaukee’s family law attorneys. She has been designated a Master of the Bench in the Matrimonial Inn of Courts, a highly regarded and exclusive society for accomplished divorce lawyers in the area. She has honed her skills in representing clients throughout all aspects of the marriage dissolution process, including property division, child custody, child support orders, and alimony arrangements.

Sometimes it may be necessary to change an agreement on the support or custody of a child after it has been established in court. A former spouse can petition to modify this order if he or she can show a substantial change in circumstances. In the case of child custody, it also will be necessary to persuade a judge that the modification is in the best interests of the child. Significant changes in circumstances that may justify an alteration in support include job loss, the onset of a disability, or involvement with the criminal justice system. These factors may not be sufficient to change a custody arrangement, however. A modification of a custody order often happens when a parent makes a distant move, since the other parent might have less opportunity to maintain his or her relationship with the child. The court must weigh whether the move is reasonable and consider its likely impact on the non-moving parent’s role in the child’s life as well as any alternatives that may be available.

Although family law matters may become adversarial when two parties do not agree, there are many resources to help you avoid a lengthy battle in the courtroom. With their assistance, you can engage in more amicable negotiation efforts or use programs like the Milwaukee Family Court Mediation Services. This allows spouses or ex-spouses to meet with a neutral third party, a mediator, to work out a mutually acceptable solution to ongoing disputes rather than enduring repeated confrontations in a courtroom. Programs such as these are typically available only by court order, and an experienced family lawyer like Terese J. Singer can help you determine what mediation options are available and how to pursue them.

Fight Your Charges with the Assistance of William J. Reddin

Attorney William J. Reddin’s accomplishments in the field of criminal law are widely recognized by the Milwaukee and Wisconsin communities. He has been repeatedly selected as a SuperLawyer by Milwaukee Magazine. Mr. Reddin’s victories in court are numerous and demonstrate the breadth of his knowledge. He has obtained favorable outcomes for many individuals charged with DUI, battery, sexual assault, and homicide.

After your arrest, you may be taken to a local police office or jail for additional questioning and information gathering. Under the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, law enforcement officials are required to inform you of your Miranda protections, which include your rights to remain silent and to contact a lawyer. If you enlist a criminal defense attorney at this point, he or she can represent you throughout the initial investigation and advocate on your behalf if you have been wrongfully arrested or charged. Being taken into custody does not always lead to criminal prosecution or trial. A skilled defense lawyer may be able to successfully intervene before formal charges are even filed, or convince a prosecutor to dismiss them because the evidence is insufficient. For example, crucial materials may have been seized without an appropriate warrant, and they can be excluded under the Fourth Amendment from a jury’s consideration. Since the prosecution must prove every element of its case beyond a reasonable doubt, charges sometimes fall apart when important evidence is excluded.
