Frequently Asked Questions About Divorce In Wisconsin
How Do I Begin Divorce Proceedings?
You can also file a Joint Petition for Divorce, if your spouse is willing to cooperate with signing same. Aside for the cooperative nature of this type of filing, the benefit of a joint petition is that neither party is required to be served saving time and costs in most instances.
Do I Need to E-File My Case?
What Do I Do If I Am Served With Divorce Papers?
If you also want the divorce, you should also file a counterclaim for divorce. This means that if your spouse changes his/her mind in the future and asks that the divorce be dismissed, the court could deny that request and grant you a judgment of divorce instead based on your counterclaim.
What If I Don’t Want A Divorce?
How Long Does A Divorce Take?
How Do I Support Myself Or See My Children While The Divorce Is Pending?
How Do I Obtain These Temporary Orders?

These stipulated orders are done without the need for you to appear in court and, when filed with the court, carry the same legal protection as if you personally appeared in court.

What Should I Wear To Divorce Court?

Are The Details Of My Case Part Of The Public Record?
By statute, some specific information is confidential such as social security numbers, financial information, account numbers, other identifying information such as driver’s license numbers, medical information, etc. This information will not appear in any public record or file.
In reality, Wisconsin CCAP only provides a general summary of (a) the existence of a case and (b) the events of a case. If someone wants to view the specific documents filed in an action, they either need to be a party or an attorney involved in the case or they would need to physically go to the courthouse and ask for a copy of the document(s). Therefore, the specific details of a document filed in your case are, in reality, not readily available to the public.
Many people do not want the existence of a case, such as a restraining order, to be part of the public record fearing it will affect their personal or professional lives. There is a process available whereby a party can request that a case be sealed or portions of a case redacted. However, that is rarely granted and only in very limited circumstances. For example, if the disclosure of a case will jeopardize someone’s safety or lead to the disclosure of confidential information.
