File for Divorce Online in Wisconsin Without a Lawyer


Dissolution of marriage is not an easy endeavor. It becomes more complicated if both parties are not able to reach an agreement on things such as alimony, child custody, property division, and so on.

Filing for divorce can be handled in one of the following ways:

  • Spouses can file prepared divorce forms with the local clerk or e-filing services.
  • Spouses can use Wisconsin Online Divorce to file the papers.

Scenario 1: Uncontested Divorce

This path is available for partners who are able to sort out their differences without a need for court hearings:

  • Prepare all the required papers for a dissolution of marriage;
  • Sign divorce documents in front of a notary public;
  • File the papers with the local clerk or using the e-filing service or Wisconsin Online Divorce.

Scenario 2: Joint Dissolution of Marriage

This is an excellent option for couples who are seeking an uncontested divorce. The main difference is in the required forms. Joint dissolution of marriage is available if spouses:

  • Agree on all the terms and conditions;
  • Are on good terms to file together.

Do-It-Yourself Divorce in Wisconsin


This option is not recommended for couples who are not able to reach an agreement and are proceeding with a contested divorce. Below is important information for spouses who decide to file for divorce without any assistance.

In order to save money, it may be a good idea to consider couple counseling or mediation. These options can make the divorce process easier.

Wisconsin Online Divorce is able to take care of the hardest step - preparation of divorce paperwork.

Step 1. Acquire forms that fit the individual case

Each case has its own specifics. That is why it is important to pick the proper set of forms.

Step 2. Fill out the appropriate forms

It is imperative for the partners to be on the same page, as conflicts can lead to mistakes. Any kind of typo could cause the court to reject the papers.

Main documents for a divorce in the state of Wisconsin include but are not limited to:

  • Summons;
  • Petition for divorce
  • Admission of service;
  • Affidavit of service.

Step 3. Filing the documents

A copy of prepared and signed papers has to be filed with the local county clerk. The clerk checks whether all the documents are properly prepared, filled out, and signed. If everything is in order, the court will accept the paperwork.

Step 4. Serving

The petitioner is obligated to serve signed divorce papers to the receiving spouse. There are several ways of completing this task:

  • Hire a county deputy to deliver the papers
  • Hire a private process server to do the task
  • Ask any adult who is not connected to the case to deliver the divorce papers
We provide you with:
  • All Required Wisconsin State Forms.
  • Wisconsin-Specific Court Filing Instructions.
  • Unlimited Revisions for as long as your account is active.

Getting a Divorce With Children in Wisconsin


Divorce with children is quite similar to a traditional divorce process. However, there are differences that parents need to know about when filing for divorce.


The state of Wisconsin recognizes two types of custody, which can be sole or joint:

  • Legal custody
  • Placement (physical custody)

The first one refers to the parent’s right and responsibility to make important decisions concerning the child. This includes but is not limited to healthcare issues, religion, school, and even consent to acquire a driver’s license.

The second one is called “Placement” but is actually physical custody. The term refers to the parent’s right to have a child physically live with them. This also means that a parent is responsible for the daily decisions for the child’s care.

Placement is often shared, or one of the parents may have primary physical custody over a child. The decision regarding placement is usually affected by proximity to school, parents’ work hours, and the child’s wishes (although this depends on the age of a child).

Child Support

Child support is financial payments made from one parent to another for a variety of expenses that include tuition, food, housing, and so on. Standard child support in the state of Wisconsin is 17% of the gross income for one child. However, the percentage can rise to 34% if the parents have 5 or more children.

Residency Requirements in WI

To be eligible for a divorce in Wisconsin, one of the partners has to meet the residency requirements. The petitioner or defendant must have lived within the state for at least 6 months before the filing process. Moreover, one of the spouses must have resided in the county of filing for at least 30 days.

If the divorce involves minor children, the situation is similar. A petitioner must qualify for the court’s jurisdiction to make decisions regarding child support, child custody, and alimony.

A child who falls under custody orders has to have lived within the state with a parent for at least 6 months before filing.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Divorce in Wisconsin?

There are lots of factors to consider when trying to determine how long the divorce will take to be finalized. Everything depends on the type of divorce, negotiation/mediation time, preparation of divorce forms, and more.

Wisconsin has a mandatory waiting period for a no-fault divorce to be finalized - 120 days from the day of filing the divorce papers. The court may require more time to review all the forms submitted after the initial filing.

When it comes to fault-based divorces, it usually takes a lot longer. The reason is quite simple - the petitioner has to provide proof of their accusations. This makes the time required to finalize a divorce almost impossible to predict.

Similarly, a contested divorce can drag on a lot longer due to numerous court hearings because of the inability of partners to reach a consensus regarding important matters.

I found this process to be very easy and inexpensive. Because my husband is refusing to help with any of this including the financial piece this was something I could afford on my own. Also I could fill out the entire questionnaire without needing to contact him.

Very easy to use. I recommend this to anybody. If your divorce is "not" messy like mine. This is the best way to do it. I am not going to make a car payment (Porsche, Mercedes or BMW) for any Divorce Attorney any time soon...
