Divide Marital Property

Marital Property Division Worksheet

Dividing marital assets during a divorce can be difficult and many times make divorce cases cost more than they should. The best way to approach a divorce is to understand what the law says about property, assets, and debts beforehand, so you know what to expect.

Wisconsin is a community property state which means, generally, everything owned by a married couple is divisible equally. Even though this may seem unfair, especially if one spouse contributed more to the breakdown of the marriage, but this is the law. Also, any assets acquired before the marriage are considered separate property and are owned only by that original owner.

There are exceptions to the law, such as inheritance, student loans, and marital waste. If any of these apply you should speak to a lawyer so your rights are protected and your financial future is more secure.

"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 SterlingLawyers.com. 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."
