Divorcing? Might not want to count your assets before they hatch

The end of a marriage can be an extremely stressful and intimidating period in life. Perhaps you and your spouse have decided to take separate paths moving forward. While you are likely experiencing some emotional challenges following the decision, these wounds may heal with time. The financial ramifications of divorce, however, could have a significant long-term impact on your future.

Pets caught in the middle of divorce disputes

There is no denying that people love their pets. You are no exception. Whether your pet has come to you relatively recently or has been in your life for decades, nothing else can fill the special place in your heart for the animal that has brought you so much joy. Now, in the midst of divorce, you may be shocked to learn that Wisconsin law considers your pet to be property and may include the animal, along with the dishes and furniture, in the division of your marital assets.
