Preparing for Dane County divorce.

According to this article, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/04/january-more-divorces-tha_n_803958.html, more divorces are filed in January than any other month, perhaps due to holiday stress, financial issues, or a simple desire to start fresh in the new year.   In my experience, Dane County divorce is common around the new year.  While the timing of a Dane County divorce filing is not usually […]

Post-divorce bitterness as art?

A Michigan man, not content with divorcing his wife and moving on, bought the house next to her and erected a huge vulgar sculpture pointed at her home.  http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/23985382/man-buys-the-house-next-to-ex-wife-erects-giant-middle-finger-statue Perhaps the money spent on this sculpture could have been instead given to charity?  Even worse, it appears that there are children involved.  This is a good example?  […]

Military benefits in Wisconsin divorce.

The intersection of divorce, child custody, McDonald’s, and psychiatry.

I have to  believe there is something else going on here.  It’s hard to imagine that a competent psychiatrist […]

Wisconsin divorce compensation to wife for failure to have sex?

I ran across this article recently, http://divorce.com/mandatory-sex/, and found the contrast between Wisconsin divorce law and French law amusing.  There is no possible way this ruling could ever happen in a Wisconsin divorce.  First, Wisconsin follows the “no fault” divorce rule.  But perhaps most interesting to me was how one would place a value on […]
