If issues with alcohol contributed to your divorce, you're not alone. One study found that the divorce rate rises as alcohol consumption rises. When these divorcing couples have children, balancing the safety of the kids with their ability to maintain a relationship with the alcoholic parent can be complicated.
While no one expects a mom or dad to be perfect, states including Wisconsin do have guidelines in place that a prospective adoptive parent must meet in order to qualify to welcome a child into their home.
You think that you want a divorce. Should you start planning for it on your own, or should you tell your spouse what you're thinking?
For many couples, divorce is not something that strikes without warning. In the movies, it always seems like one spouse walks in on the other one in the midst of an affair or some other dramatic event. While this does happen, it is far more common for little things to cause the couple's relationship to erode until they know it is just time to end it.
In order to qualify for a divorce in Wisconsin, one or both of the spouses must have lived in the state for at least six months prior to filing under 767.06 (1m) of the existing code.
