In Dane County, the family court procedures begin with filing a petition for divorce and serving it to the other spouse. This is followed by a cooling-off period, during which either party can request temporary orders related to child custody, asset division, and support. After this, both parties disclose their financial statements, and based on these, the court makes temporary orders. Mediation follows if the parties can't agree on child custody or visitation. If no agreement is reached, a trial is held, and the judge makes the final orders. Throughout this process, Attorney Messerschmidt stands beside Andrew, ensuring his rights are protected and that he fully understands what's happening at every stage.
