In Wisconsin marital property is divided following the rules of “Community Property.” The general concepts of Community Property are:
Property (personal property and real estate) brought into the marriage by a spouse remains property of that spouse after a divorce.
Income (from employment, stock dividends, real estate sales, etc.) earned during the marriage by either spouse is divided evenly upon divorce.
Property acquired during the marriage is divided evenly upon divorce.
Debt incurred during the course of the marriage by either spouse is divided evenly upon divorce.
If you’re considering filing for divorce (or think your spouse is), you should consult with an experienced divorce lawyer who can help you.
