Getting a Divorce in Wisconsin

Wisconsin is a “no-fault” divorce state. This means that neither party needs to prove wrongdoing by the other to obtain a divorce. All that is required is for one party to testify, under oath, that the marriage is irretrievably broken and that there is no possibility for reconciliation. 

In Wisconsin, a divorce may be contested or uncontested:
  • An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties agree on issues related to division of the marital property, spousal / family / child support, and child custody and placement
  • In a contested divorce, the parties cannot come to an agreement on these critical issues
Divorce is a complicated, emotionally difficult process best handled by a trained divorce attorney at Laster & Associates.

Family Law Matters Related to your Divorce

There are many issues to resolve in your divorce with important, lasting consequences, which is why your divorce is best handled by a trained family law attorney. Laster & Associates is a full-service family law firm, offering legal representation in:
  • Spousal Support: You or your spouse may ask the court for a maintenance award, whereby one spouse contributes to the support of the other.
  • Property Division: The law in Wisconsin presumes that all property acquired by spouses during their marriage is community property to be equally distributed between the parties upon their divorce. While there are exceptions to this rule, it is important to ensure that your property is protected.
  • Child Support: Child support in Wisconsin is based on a set of guidelines according to the pre-tax income of the supporting parent. 
  • Child Custody / Placement: The court may award joint or sole custody to a parent. Physical placement of the child, however, may be primary with one parent or a shared schedule between both parents.
The divorce lawyers at Laster & Associates are here to make sure your rights and interests are protected.
