Marital satisfaction and divorce

Married couples make the decision to end their marriages for an array of reasons. Sometimes, a marriage is seemingly healthy and a couple’s relationship is progressing well, until one incident (such as an affair or an episode of domestic violence) brings the marriage to an end. In other instances, a couple may be struggling with long-term resentment or marital challenges and finally decide to separate. There are many factors that play a role in divorce and marital satisfaction (or a lack thereof) is an important part of a married couple’s relationship.

Can you file for divorce alone?

Even after you have made the painful decision to divorce your spouse, you may not be ready to discuss this choice with them. It may not even be safe to bring up the topic in an abusive or otherwise problematic relationship, yet you are also facing the prospect of getting your ex to consent to sign the divorce papers. Before you can do that, though, you first have to file for divorce. Does your soon-to-be-ex partner have to file with you, or can you file separately in Wisconsin courts and save yourself the argument?

Reduced income and how it affects child support

Once divorced parents in Wisconsin have determined child support payments, the thought is these amounts will not change until the child becomes an adult. However, there are circumstances in which the paying party has a change in income due to a lower paying job or complete job loss. In these circumstances, a modification by the court may be granted but there are certain steps that the non-custodial parent must make to avoid certain penalties and consequences.

Why should I be cautious when on social media?

Divorce is not always easy, and you might feel tempted to discuss your situation with your friends. There is often nothing wrong with you sharing details of your Milwaukee divorce with your friends and family over coffee. However, the minute you share information about your separation on social media, you could end up making your divorce more complicated.
