LEGAL SEPARATION


LEGAL SEPARATION IN WISCONSIN

The process for legal separation is the same as that of divorce in Wisconsin; ultimately all assets and debts are divided, custody and placement are determined, and child support and maintenance or alimony orders may be issued by the court.

However, the standard for separation is “broken” as opposed to “irretrievably broken,” the legal standard for divorce.  Parties to a legal separation may not remarry unless the separation is converted to a divorce.

The divorce lawyers at Gagne McChrystal De Lorenzo and Burghardt are experts at legal separation law.
