Valid grounds to get divorce in Wisconsin

Wisconsin flag

In Wisconsin, there are only two grounds for divorce. These are no-fault grounds:

  • irretrievable breakdown of the marriage 
  • both partners in a marriage have made everything to break down marital relationship. 

If both parties have signed up the special Wisconsin divorce papers that state that their marriage is irretrievably broken, the judge should also confirm that the marital relationship is broken.
There are cases when the spouses do not live with each other for more than a year and then one partner states that the marriage is irretrievably broken. In such cases the court has to consider all the relevant factors:

  • If the court decides that there are some very important reasons for a couple to reconcile, there should be another hearing no sooner than 30 days, nor later than 60 days after the last hearing. 
  • If the court will consider that there is not an important reason for couple reconciliation, the court must make a finding that the marriage is irretrievably broken.

  • The connection of a child with his/her mother and father, sister or brother and other relatives that have a big influence on child’s life
  • How much quality time have a parent devoted to a child in the past, how much time he/she will promise to spend with a child in the future, what changes is he/she going to make in order to achieve this goal
  • Whether have a parent ever been involved in a child’s abuse
  • Whether have a parent ever been involved in a domestic abuse or inter-spousal abuse

Property division in Wisconsin

Property division

Division of the property is a very essential and at the same time difficult question all the couples face during this divorce in Wisconsin. Property division happens not only while divorce, but also when partners choose legal separation or annulment. Wisconsin is a community property state, so all the spouses' property is typically divided 50/50 (but only the property acquired during the marriage). On the other hand, the separate property of each spouse usually remains to belong the initial owner according to the amount of money or property he/she brought into a marriage.

Separate property

This is a property you have obtained because of:

  • A gift of another person. 
  • Individual retirement account, inheritance, etc. 
  • Some money of the funds described above. 

If partners can reach an agreement and sign the Divorce Agreement then they may give this document to the court and there are usually more chances to receive what they asked.  

Divorce without a lawyer in Wisconsin

Cases, when a divorce is made without the participation of a lawyer, are called Pro Se Divorce, it is a Latin expression that translates as "on her or his own". A divorce without the participation of a lawyer is completely legal and is subject to execution in any state. If the spouses have come to the agreement of a division of property and custody of children, then it may be rather convenient to initiate the Pro Se Divorce.
