Divorce In Wisconsin
In Wisconsin, in order for a couple to divorce, they must file for a divorce in the state of Wisconsin with a Court that has jurisdiction to hear the matter.
To file for a divorce in the state of Wisconsin, one or both spouses must have been a legal resident of Wisconsin residing in Wisconsin for six or more months and in the county in which the action is filed for a period of thirty (30) days immediately preceding the filing.
Wisconsin Divorce For Nonresidents
If you are seeking a divorce from a person who is not now a resident of Wisconsin, the Court may still have jurisdiction. If the responding party has never lived in Wisconsin, then you should consult with your attorney regarding the Court's power to make a decision concerning your marriage, your children, your property or your support.
