There may come a point when you realize that divorce is the only way to better your life. As disappointing as it may be, you can't let your guard down. It's critical to protect your legal rights every step of the way.
Marriages are very important to people and their social circles in every society. Weddings in the spring and summer are a big part of life in Wisconsin. Although divorces are not as celebrated, they are also common and require just as much attention, if not more, to get it right for all the concerned parties.
Courts tended to side with mothers in child custody cases for much of the 20th century. In fact, joint custody was so rare in some jurisdictions that it was largely reserved for children of criminal or psychologically unstable mothers. But now, courts in Wisconsin and other states are likely to consider or even encourage joint custody for children of divorced parents.
Divorce is one of the most stressful events in a person's life, especially since no one goes into marriage thinking it could end. Fortunately, the state of Wisconsin makes it easier than it has been historically in many places around the United States.
