Wisconsin does not have guidelines for spousal support. Since there are no percentage baselines, a divorce where spousal support is argued may go to trial if the parties can't come to an agreement. If a divorce with spousal support goes to trial the laws in Wisconsin Statutes 767.26 clearly give sole discretion of spousal support to the court.
Is Wisconsin an alimony state?
The list of factors the court will use in determining spousal support are listed in the link to the Wisconsin statute in the above paragraph. Wisconsin is a no fault divorce state meaning you don't need to have a reason for getting a divorce. For that reason, the reason for getting a divorce won't factor into spousal support orders.

What our Clients are Saying
"This past fall, I filed for divorce. My husband and I were in a situation where neither of us really needed a lawyer to sort things out, so I decided to file pro se. I was concerned about making a mistake in the paperwork and delaying the final separation, so I called Sterling Law. Attorney Festerling agreed to work w/me on a "consult only" basis, meaning she would answer my questions and review my documents, charging only for the time spent on those things. There would be no big legal fees incurred for her presence in court or for her time in filling out documents that I was capable of handling myself. She was kind and helpful, and our case went through without a hitch. The overall outlay was very reasonable. I was very happy with the help I received and felt confident going to the court date, knowing all our ducks were in a row. It was as good as an experience like this can be."Beth E.
