Wisconsin Frequently Asked Divorce Questions
What are the grounds for filing for divorce in Wisconsin?The court must find that the marriage is irretrievably broken. This finding is usually based on the petition for the divorce and one or both parties’ testimony at the final hearing. If one party contests the grounds, the court is still required to make a finding that the marriage is irretrievably broken if it finds no reasonable prospect of reconciliation.
How much will my Wisconsin divorce cost?Since each case is different, the cost of each case varies significantly. The cost depends on many factors including the number of hearings, the types of issues included, the nature of assets of one or both parties, whether a guardian ad litem is appointed to represent the children’s best interests, and whether the parties have reached agreements on some or all issues.
Can I annul my marriage?Legal annulments are granted only for very specific reasons. The court may grant an annulment if it finds:
- A party lacked capacity to consent to the marriage, because of age, mental incapacity, or the influence of drugs or alcohol;
- A party was induced to enter the marriage by force, duress or fraud within one year of obtaining knowledge of the fraud;
- A party lacks the physical capacity to consummate the marriage by sexual intercourse and this was not know by the other party; or
- The marriage is prohibited by law.
