Attorney Stefanie P. Wagner

Family Law, Divorce, Child Custody and Placement, and Parental Rights

Stefanie Wagner focuses her practice on all aspects of family law, divorce, and paternity, including serving as Guardian ad Litem for children. Attorney Wagner has experience in all of the typical issues arising in family law, such as child placement, maintenance, and property and debt division, as well as experience in many less common issues such as adoptions, restraining orders, and paternity.

Attorney Wagner describes her practice:

As a Wisconsin Family Law Attorney, I advocate for my clients in a wide-range of family law, divorce, custody, placement, and support cases. I understand that family law issues go beyond the law and effect you at a very personal and emotional level. Not only are you dealing with the stress of going through divorce, legal separation or custody issues, but you may also be worried about the cost of hiring an attorney. At Curran, Hollenbeck & Orton, S.C., we offer quality legal representation at a fair price. I am an Attorney at Law, which means that it is my job to provide you with compassionate and knowledgeable legal advice. I understand that divorce is more than just the end, because it is also the beginning of your new life.

I bring a unique perspective to my family law and divorce cases because I am also a Guardian ad Litem. My work involves custody and placement issues, where I listen to your children's needs and help the Court decide how your family will move forward after your divorce case. My role as a Guardian ad Litem is to represent your children’s best interests by investigating the facts, helping parents negotiate, and ultimately taking a position on custody and placement in Court.

When you hire a divorce lawyer, you want an attorney who takes your side and fights for your rights under Wisconsin law. My experience includes successfully representing family and divorce clients at trial, as well as negotiating and mediating with the opposing attorney outside of the courtroom. I take a practical and hands-on approach to each case. My goal is to provide you with the highest level of service and effective legal representation while also being mindful of your financial situation.

The Personal Side
