Child Custody Attorneys in La Crosse

In any divorce involving children, their upbringing and financial support must be primary considerations. Unmarried parents also commonly require protection of their interests as paternity is established, typically leading to a child support order and the granting — or denial — of visitation rights.Bosshard | Parke Ltd. is a highly regarded resource for child custody negotiations and disputes in the La Crosse area, other western Wisconsin communities and southeastern Minnesota. Our family law team brings together more than 130 years in practice, including service as court-appointed guardians ad litem. We know custody and child support from all angles, and our practice is balanced in terms of representation of both fathers and mothers.

Proven, Results-Driven Representation for Wisconsin and Minnesota Parents

Loving, responsible parents often disagree on what custody, parenting time and financial arrangements are best for children. Our lawyers consistently align their efforts with clients’ unique situations and priorities. Key considerations in your case may include:

  • Whether you decide to seek primary residential custody or a joint/shared custody order providing near-equal time with children, we will offer guidance based on experience in the court where your case will be decided.
  • While the court will consider many factors such as which parent is the primary care provider for children today, there is no statutory preference for either the mother or father. Often,developing a parenting schedule that works for all parties is even more important than fighting for a specific custody order.
  • Child support is guideline-based in both Wisconsin and Minnesota, but an array of factors may impact what you actually pay or receive. We are diligent in demanding accurate information on parents’ financial resources, living expenses and children’s needs.

For the vast majority of our family law clients, nothing is more important than maintaining the closest possible relationships with their children. We strive for resolution out of court whenever possible, because this keeps decision-making within the family and negotiated outcomes are far more likely to be sustainable over time.
