Wisconsin Separation Agreement

A Wisconsin separation agreement is a legal document used by married couples who are no longer living together to establish rights and obligations regarding the division of marital property, spousal support, and other matters. Wisconsin recognizes separation as a distinct legal status, but the time and filing requirements are similar to those for divorce.

Is a Separation Agreement Legal in Wisconsin?

Yes, spouses can create separation agreements or stipulations on their own and later submit them to courts in legal separation or other processes, where the agreement’s terms are treated as recommendations, but not all of them, particularly those regarding child support, will be binding.[1]

Legal Separation Requirements

  • Filing Fee: $194.50 (or $184.50 if there is no request for support or maintenance)
  • Residency: One of the spouses must be a resident of the county where the action is brought for at least 30 days prior to filing.[2]
  • Where to File: With the Circuit Court for the county where one spouse resides.
