This summary is written to give you a brief overview of the process and time-line.

Uncontested Divorce in Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, for a pro se uncontested divorce in a childless marriage, the petitioner typically files the following required divorce paperwork:

In the Wisconsin uncontested divorce process, the respondent typically completes the following:

When the couple has minor children in a Wisconsin divorce, the petitioner prepares slightly different versions of the above documents which address child related issues:

The Respondent prepares the following:

The petitioner files the originals of the Summons, Petition, and Confidential Addendum with the clerk of the District/Family court and, as part of service, gives one copy to the respondent, and keeps one copy. The clerk of court assigns a number used on every divorce document related to the case.

When the respondent signs the Admission of Service, the action can then move along toward a no-fault uncontested divorce, which is the most common path for those divorcing couples that file without a lawyer. Signing the Admission of Service eliminates formal service of process. In addition to the Summons and Petition, an Order to Show Case and Affidavit of Temporary Order and a blank Financial Disclosure Statement, and an Order to Appear may be conveyed with the Admission of Service.

Wisconsin Divorce Online Process

When a third party -- a friend or relative who is 18 or over, a resident of Wisconsin and not a party to the action โ€“ serves process that party completes an Affidavit of Service, in which he or she attests to the successful Service of Process. The Affidavit is then returned to the Clerk of Courts.

The Financial Disclosure Statement details each spouseโ€™s financial picture, from employment and assets, to liabilities and monthly expenses, so that each understands more about, for example, paying child or paying alimony. Wisconsin is an equitable distribution state, so the disclosure helps the court to divide property and debts fairly if it is asked to. In most uncontested divorce cases the distribution of property and debt is decided and agreed upon by the spouses.

In an uncontested divorce, the judge may or may not hold a brief hearing on the case after at least 120 days since the petitioner filed the paperwork. At the hearing, the petitioner confirms residency in Wisconsin, and he or she states that the marriage cannot be repaired. Absent any other issues, the judge signs the Findings of Fact Conclusions of Law and Judgment and the divorce becomes final.
