Divorce in Green Bay means a new beginning

Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of marital conflict, Attorneys Vann and Chamberlain can help.

We have a solid record of skills and experience to provide legal services in all areas of family law.

  • Divorce

    Changes in your family structure can pose many challenges. We can help you gain the most equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of marital home, child support, alimony/spousal maintenance, and child custody rights.​

  • Child custody and visitation

    We can help you protect your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive home.

  • Child support

    We can help ensure that you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial aid required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.

  • Child support modification and enforcement

    Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to adjust child support payments accordingly.

  • Alimony/Spousal Support

    Divorce should not lead to financial crises. We can help establish an equitable amount of spousal support.

  • Adoption

    We assist families with all aspects of the legalities of your adoption so that you can concentrate on your new family. Whether it’s an open adoption or step-parent adoption, we can help guide you through the process.

  • How long will my divorce take?

    The exact timeline for a divorce is very difficult to determine. Every case is different. Wisconsin has a statutory 120 day waiting requirement after filing before a couple can get divorced. In circumstances where both spouses agree on every issue, a divorce can be completed in this 120-day timeframe (this is called an “uncontested divorce”). However, if the parties cannot agree on custody, property division or other matters, a divorce can take at least a year or more. If there are issues involving concealed or hidden assets, a divorce can take as long as several years.

  • How much will my divorce cost?

    Our firm takes pride in the quality of our work and in our ability to keep our fees reasonable and competitive in northeast Wisconsin. Just as the length of a divorce is hard to predict, no attorney can predict what a contested divorce will cost because we never know what the other side is going to do. The cost is closely related to the time spent working on your case (divorce lawyers get paid on an hourly basis). We work hard to be as efficient as possible in moving your case to a conclusion. The best way of ensuring the case stays within a budget is by making sure that each client is properly attended to and communicated with throughout their case. Our experienced, compassionate, and (when needed) aggressive attorneys focus on the individual needs of each client. As a result, we will not be your least expensive option for a divorce lawyer nor will we be your most expensive. Instead, we strive to offer our clients exceptional legal service for the best value possible.

  • Will an extramarital affair have an impact on my divorce?

    For good or bad, Wisconsin is a “no-fault” divorce state, which means that Wisconsin courts will not consider whether a spouse is having an extramarital affair when it comes to the distribution of property. However, an affair can impact how child custody is determined. When an affair is part of the facts in a case, we work diligently with our clients to obtain child custody arrangements designed to protect the child’s physical and psychological wellbeing.

  • Will alimony be awarded in my divorce case?

    Maintenance, also known as alimony, can be a highly contentious issue in a divorce. This is one area of divorce law with wide-ranging results that calls for strong advocacy to get the best results. Courts consider many factors that affect the amount and length of a maintenance award. We will explain the relevant standards and guide you toward a fair resolution, taking into consideration your short and long terms goals.
