Division Of Marital Property In Wisconsin
Under Wisconsin divorce laws, property is handled under the theory of "equitable division of property." This does not necessarily mean a 50-50 split of property. Instead, all property is first characterized as either marital or nonmarital property. Only marital property is then valuated and divided equitably between the two parties.
What can complicate matters is if there is a business owned by the parties or there are many assets to consider. Other types of assets to consider are:
- Retirement accounts such as pensions, Roth IRAs and 401(k)s
- Stocks, bonds and mutual funds
- Real estate, both residential and commercial
- Businesses, practices and partnerships
- Cars, furniture, jewelry and other personal property
- Offshore accounts and savings accounts
