Calm Guidance And Advocacy In Contested Custody Battles

Last updated on February 15, 2024

Child custody and visitation (also called placement) are easily the most contentious issues in a divorce. No matter how amicably you try to navigate the situation, it may spiral into acrimony very quickly.

At Nelson, Krueger & Millenbach, LLC, our goal is to handle contentious child custody disputes with respect, dignity and maturity. Even as we advocate tenaciously for your rights, we explore all available avenues when it comes to maintaining polite relations with your child’s other parent. From our law offices in Milwaukee and Waukesha, we serve clients throughout Wisconsin.

Call Nelson, Krueger & Millenbach, LLC at 414-939-0529, or send us an email to schedule a free initial consultation.

Exploring Strategies That Minimize Conflict

Whenever possible, we take a cooperative approach – even to heated child custody and visitation cases or child support cases. Our family lawyers will explore methods of alternative dispute resolution such as:

  • Mediation
  • Collaborative law
  • Pretrial negotiations

Alison Krueger, one of our partner attorneys, is considerably skilled in mediation. She regularly represents parties in mediated divorces and also provides evaluative mediation in certain family law cases. As needed, however, she and our other team members are prepared to represent you in traditional divorce litigation.

Always Advocating For Your Child’s Best Interests

The most important people in a custody dispute are the children. Even in the midst of a difficult legal fight, we are able to see through emotion and provide an objective view of what is best for the children. Divorce is already stressful enough for kids, so we work with you to shield them from animosity and help them thrive.
