Can You Get a Divorce If You're Pregnant?

There is nothing in Wisconsin law that prevents a pregnant woman from beginning or continuing divorce proceedings. However, there is no guarantee that your divorce will be completed before you give birth. Depending on the complexity of your divorce, it is possible that the judge won't grant a final divorce order until the child is born. This is especially true if there are unresolved issues pertaining to custody, support or paternity.

In any event, you must tell the court about your pregnancy. A guardian ad litem, or legal guardian, needs to be appointed to represent the child's interests.

Please feel free to give us a call or complete the online form if you have any additional questions. This is a difficult time, and an experienced divorce attorney can help ease your burden.
