Wisconsin Property Division Laws

On behalf of Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C.

How is property divided during the divorce process in Wisconsin? Wisconsin is a community property state. This means that under Wisconsin law, marital property must be divided 50/50, down the middle. This differs from many other states, that utilize the “equitable division” theory when dividing property. The “equitable division” theory entails dividing property according to what is fair, or equitable. Read more about division of property in Wisconsin here.
