  • DIVORCE OPTIONS AND COLLABORATIVE LAW IN WISCONSIN

    In Wisconsin, a couple can divorce using several different approaches: Pro Se – which means “do-it yourself”, Mediation using a neutral third party, and litigation – which means filing a lawsuit against your spouse. A more efficient and focused approach is Collaborative which uses a team of experts in a client-centered process.

WELCOME TO THE COLLABORATIVE FAMILY LAW WEBSITE

Welcome to the website of the Collaborative Family Law Council of Wisconsin. Our goal is to make you aware of your options for the resolution of family disputes - including divorce - and to help you learn about Collaborative, an alternative to the traditional litigated approach.

We encourage you to "Take the Tour" of the Collaborative model to read about the process and watch brief videos featuring Wisconsin practitioners of Collaborative. You may also learn about each team professional using the links to the left. Search for a Collaborative Professional here as well.

WISCONSIN COLLAB+BLOG is the Archive page for past posts, and is a great place to learn more about collaborative law, issues in family law and divorce, and what you should know about financial considerations, parenting, support, and a host of other topics.

Client Comments

  • I chose the collaborative method in my divorce because I didn’t want to add stress to an already emotional situation, and because my former spouse and I both shared the same goal: to protect our children and address their ongoing needs above all other issues. We reached an agreement we’re both satisfied with and maintain a positive relationship. Approaching our situation collaboratively ensured the kind of cooperation we’ll need as we raise our kids into adulthood.
