Wisconsin Divorce Filing Fees

When filing a petition for divorce, there is a fee associated with it. The fee can vary from county to county. To find out exactly how much it is for your county, contact the family court division of your local circuit court.

To file the petition, you will need to bring a copy of the petition to the court for them to enter it into the system to actually begin the divorce process. Once filed, you will need to serve the other party within 90 days of filing. That will then put them on notice that you have filed for divorce.

This can be a daunting process and experience. Contact our firm today to sit down with one of our experienced attorneys to discuss the process more and see how we can help you!
