The difference between legal discovery and cyberstalking

Social media has blurred the lines between what is public and what is private and changed the way that people gather evidence to use in a divorce proceeding. Nevertheless, there are laws that govern online behavior, and a person conducting legal discovery on a spouse's status through social media while going through a divorce in Wisconsin should take care that the behavior does not cross the line into cyberstalking. 

How to keep the happy in your holidays in a co-parenting plan

When you decided to divorce, you likely expected to encounter various types of challenges, especially regarding your children. Helping them adapt to your new lifestyle no doubt became one of your highest priorities as soon as you filed paperwork in a Wisconsin court. You hopefully have a strong network of close friends and family, several of whom have perhaps already navigated similar situations in the past, who can give you advice and be there to encourage and support you and your kids, as needed.

How do I file for divorce?

If you feel your marriage is over, then you should consider filing for a divorce in Wisconsin. Filing your petition requires working with the court. According to the State Bar of Wisconsin, the first move is to file a petition for divorce, which includes a summons that asks for a response to the petition. Your spouse has 20 days to respond to your petition, which outlines why you want a divorce and what you would like in regards to property, custody and other matters.
