When You Are Hurt and it is Not Your Fault
Appleton Lawyer Offers Pro Se Divorce Assistance
Wisconsin "Self Represented" Divorce, Pro-Se Divorce
Pro-Se is a Latin term that means "for self" or "in one's own behalf." Because Wisconsin is a No-fault divorce state, people can legally represent themselves in their own divorce because it is no longer necessary to prove that one party in the marriage did something to destroy the marriage.
The only ground for divorce in Wisconsin is that the marriage is "irretrievably broken."
Anyone who meets the residency requirements of Wisconsin is eligible and only one of the parties needs to meet those requirements. To be eligible, one of the divorcing parties must have resided in the state of Wisconsin for six months and lived in the same Wisconsin county for 30 (thirty) days.
Wisconsin Winning Pro-Se Divorce Legal Team
When both parties agree to get divorced, we provide expert guidance regarding the divorce process and provide the necessary paperwork for couples interested in obtaining a divorce or separation. We provide couples with the option of going through the process in an amicable and fair manner by offering personal, caring, and confidential support through the entire divorce or separation process as an inexpensive alternative.
We help you understand what is required to file a divorce.
We prepare a template for you to follow to guide you through the decisions you need to make to ensure your documents are complete. We offer you the instructions in a two-phased approach to reassure you and ensure accuracy of your divorce documentation.
You and your spouse maintain control of the entire process outside of the Court proceedings. It is your responsibility to fill out the financial disclosure form, obtain the required information, and make the decisions.
Each divorce or legal separation action can be different, so couples must work together throughout the entire process. You are responsible for any fees beyond the preparation of the divorce documents such as the Court filing.
