Our Madison divorce attorneys can guide you through difficult Divorce Litigation

Divorce is one of the hardest things a person can go through in life. It’s a huge decision, and can be made even more difficult if your spouse is the one seeking divorce. Regardless of who decides to initiate it, the impact divorce can have on your life is staggering.

You worry about money, your home, property, assets and investments, and most importantly, your children. Protecting yourself is absolutely critical for the best outcome.

The state of Wisconsin recognizes no-fault divorce

You and your spouse must have been separated for more than six month to obtain a no-fault divorce in Wisconsin. However, during the separation, our attorneys can start an action to ensure obligations are met.

The state also allows for fault-based divorce, which is based on one party’s actions, should those actions lead to the breakdown of the marriage.

You’ll certainly want your divorce to be as civil as possible. But remember… it’s still a divorce. If your spouse tells you to trust him/her, do yourself a favor and be sure you have excellent legal counsel in our Madison Divorce Attorneys.

Borns Law Office includes attorneys who focus on divorce. They’ll walk you through every option, answer any questions, represent you well and truly care that you get the best service and outcome possible.
