Divorce / Legal Separation: Filing Joint (together) With Children under 18

You will also find two checklists which take you step-by-step through the divorce / legal separation filing process. The checklists break the process down into two parts, Checklist 1 & Checklist 2; you must complete both.

Checklist 1 includes: everything you need to initially file your divorce / legal separation. Checklist 2 includes everything you need to complete after filing.

For qualifying low-income individuals, the courts offer a fee waiver. If you would like to request a fee waiver, you will find the form at the bottom of this page.

Remember

You can get help with Checklist 1 at the Milwaukee Justice Center's Self-Help Desks.

You can get help with Checklist 2 by appointment only.
