Family Law & Divorce Attorneys

How We Can Help

At Hesser & Kipke, we strive to provide our communities with comprehensive legal services in all matters concerning family law and divorce. Above all, we want our clients to understand what legal avenues are available for them. While we are prepared to take a dispute to trial if necessary, we can also help clients settle disputes outside the courtroom through skillful litigation and negotiation. Some of the practice areas in family law that we specialize in include the following:

Children's Issues

Children’s issues may include cases involving child custody, adoption, abuse, and guardianship. Due to the complexity and emotionally-charged nature of children-related disputes, it’s in the best interest of parents to enlist the help of a legal professional. Jennifer Kipke, has ample experience dealing with children’s issues inside and outside the courtroom.


Filing for divorce is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Every divorce case is unique and deserving of personalized legal support. We can help soon-to-be divorcees develop a customized plan that takes into consideration the assets and debts to be divided, as well as what’s best for the couple’s children. We can also assist clients in drafting prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.


In the event of domestic violence, stalking, or a similar rights violation, parties may request a court order against the aggressor. We can help determine if an injunction is the right course of action. If needed, we can assist clients in gathering evidence and following the necessary requirements to obtain a temporary and permanent injunction.

Why Do I Need A Family & Divorce Lawyer?

There are multiple reasons to consider legal support when dealing with family-related issues. Going through a divorce, for instance, can be incredibly taxing on a person’s judgment and well-being. Caught up in the heat of an argument, spouses may struggle to communicate effectively, negotiate, and find common ground for the sake of their children, but understandably so. When so much is at stake — such as love, family, and finances — it’s easy to lose track of the bigger picture.

A family law attorney can not only provide clients with dependable legal counsel and representation, but they can also act as a mediator during tense situations. When negotiating matters such as child custody, a lawyer can be a parent’s best ally by remaining impartial to the situation while still being committed to protecting their client’s rights. Furthermore, by leaving all the legal paperwork and formal proceedings to a lawyer, clients have more time to address their feelings and plan for upcoming life changes.
