This state uses the "Community Property" method of dividing assets from a marriage. That method divides the property (and debt) as near equally as the court deems appropriate.

Up until 1975, Wisconsinites who engaged in "dueling" (with pistols or other weapons) were barred from voting or holding public office. 

The Wisconsin Dueling and Disenfranchisement Amendment of 1975 eliminated such penalties, which seemed to clear the way for civic-minded folk to settle their differences the old fashioned way.

To have an annulment petition accepted by the court, you must claim one of the acceptable grounds for annulment and later be prepared to provide proof to the court that the marriage should be annulled. 

Most parties that explore an annulment opt for a divorce instead, because annulments are more difficult to achieve.

For many people divorce can be one of the most traumatic experiences of a lifetime. Your divorce doesn't have to be ugly if you choose alternatives.

#CollaborativeLaw - each party hires an attorney trained in collaborative law, and the parties then begin a process of resolution after signing contracts that they agree to avoid a trial over their differences. Should one party choose to opt out of the collaborative process, the attorneys are obligated to resign, and the parties must then hire new attorneys in preparation for a court trial.

#Mediation - A Mediator, who is trained in conflict resolution and the law, attempts to resolve differences so that a Settlement Agreement can be signed and submitted to the court.

Wisconsin refers to the parenting or co-parenting of children as "Physical and Legal Placement". In the absence of a agreement by the parents, the parent who gets primary placement will get decided by the court based on a myriad of factors, including the history of how frequently each parent cared for the children during the marriage.

Spousal maintenance can be temporary (awarded over the duration of the divorce or separation process), a finite term (specific number of years), or permanent (indefinite). There are factors that get weighed by the court that influence its decision.
