Can You Get a Divorce If You're Pregnant?

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.

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.
