Uncontested divorce in Wisconsin

Having decided to officially end their marriage, couples in Wisconsin can go for two options:

  • Contested dissolution. Sometimes, spouses are unable to reach a consensus on important divorce matters without expert help or are not willing to negotiate in any way. In such situation, they have no choice but to hire attorneys and attend a lot of hearings where the judge listens to each party and makes the final decision. Consequently, spouses spend a lot of money, waste time on meetings with lawyers and divorce proceedings, and have to wait for months or even years for their divorce to become final.
  • Uncontested divorce. When you and your spouse have no debates over anything in your marriage dissolution process and want to end it amicably, you may get an uncontested divorce. This means that you have already decided on matters related to shared property, children, finances, debts, and any other aspects that arise during the legal termination of your marriage. The good news is that filing for an uncontested divorce, a couple does not even need to hire a lawyer and can save a lot of money. Additionally, spouses will have to attend only one hearing to get done with the whole process, which won’t take a lot of time.

There are different types of divorce papers in WI, and you will have to find those that suit your situation. Moreover, all the paperwork should be properly filled out according to the specifics of your case.

Getting a divorce in Wisconsin with a child

Before splitting up, couples must settle all issues related to the custody and support of their children.

  • Courts in Wisconsin prefer granting joint legal custody (shared decision-making rights) to parents unless there is evidence of abuse from one of the spouses.
  • In certain counties, parents will be required to go through a program aimed at showing them how to best help their kids deal with a divorce.
  • Before starting the final hearing, parents have to present a parenting plan. Among other things, they need to agree on days or overnights that the child will spend with each parent, holidays, birthdays, work and school schedules, etc.
  • While deciding on custody, a judge takes into account the age of the child, the living situation of the parents, the relationships between the child and each parent, the mental and physical health of both spouses, etc. The courts of Wisconsin will also consider a child’s preferences if he or she is seen as mature enough to make a sound judgement.
