Filing for Divorce in Wisconsin > Step 2: Draft, File, and Serve Divorce Papers

Filing the Divorce Papers

Once you have decided which type of divorce you plan to proceed with, the next step is filing the divorce papers. Filing the divorce papers can sometimes seem like a daunting task. That is why we take care of this step for you. As part of any service we provide, drafting the necessary paperwork and filing it with the appropriate court system is included. Contact us for a free consultation with any questions or concerns you may have regarding this step of the divorce process. You can also read through our Frequently Asked Questions to glean some other insights as well. 

Step 1: Draft the Papers

Our team will have all of your initial divorce papers drafted and ready for filing within twenty-four hours of you retaining us. There is nothing for you to do except apply your signature (which can be done remotely).

Step 2: File the Papers

Our lawyers have electronic access to the court system and can electronically file your divorce papers in minutes. Once the papers have been filed, the case is officially opened and a judge is assigned.

Step 3: Serving the Divorce Papers

We will ensure that the very specific timelines for service of divorce papers in Wisconsin are met. We will also discuss your options for delivering the papers to your spouse; whenever possible, we opt to use discreet delivery methods that reduce unnecessary conflict between spouses.

Note: If your spouse already filed, then you need not complete steps 1 through 3. If you are responding to an action for divorce, we will help you file an answer/response to the divorce papers, which is due within twenty days of your receipt of the divorce papers.

Once the papers have been served, the next step on the process is to Obtain Temporary Orders.
