stopping a divorce

brandau & waltz

Can a spouse stop a divorce?

Wisconsin and Minnesota both operate under "no-fault" divorce laws, which means that one spouse need not prove that the other spouse committed adultery or another breach of the marital vows. Because no fault must be found, there are no grounds upon which one spouse can contest the other spouse's petition for divorce.

Divorce laws only require that the spouses attest to the fact that the marriage is irretrievably broken and cannot be repaired. During the final divorce hearing, the judge will ask each spouse if that is his or her belief. If a spouse answers yes, the court will proceed, completing the findings of facts, and dissolve the marriage.

On the other hand, spouses have certainly proven that there are numerous ways to slow the divorce process to a near grinding hault to allow one spouse to attempt reconciliation with the other spouse.

Attorney Ann Brandau will explain Minnesota or Wisconsin divorce law to you when you meet with her, but moreover, she will explain to you how the laws of your state will affect your life presently and in the future.
