The Divorce Process in Wisconsin

The legal process begins with filing a petition for divorce with the Wisconsin Circuit Court. As a no-fault state, the only grounds for divorce in this Wisconsin is that the marriage is irretrievably broken. The court generally finds that the marriage is irretrievably broken, even if only one party wants the divorce and whether it is contested or uncontested.

The court will grant a legal separation and make temporary arrangements for:

  • Possession of the family home and marital property
  • Child custody
  • Child support and family maintenance
  • Visitation rights and parenting schedules

These initial arrangements are put in place to ensure that the daily needs of children and families are met during the divorce process. The temporary arrangements will be replaced by the divorce settlement agreement and proposed parenting plan that is either negotiated by the parties or ordered by the court.

Representation for Contested & Uncontested Divorce

The divorce process may be contested or uncontested. This refers to the agreement of both parties about the terms of the divorce, not that both parties want the divorce to happen. In an uncontested divorce, the process is easier because the parties are in agreement on all terms of the divorce. A divorce attorney prepares the documents for the approval of the court.

A divorce is contested when the parties do not agree about:

  • Property division
  • Division of marital assets and debts
  • Spousal support
  • Child custody
  • Visitation

If the parties are unable to agree on the major issues of the divorce, the judge may order mediation or Family Court Counseling Services to help them resolve the disputed matters. When there is still no agreement, the judge will make a decision on the issues that have not been resolved. Due to the complexity of contested divorces, it is important to contact an experienced Milwaukee divorce lawyer to guide you through the process.
