In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, state and local stay at home orders and intensifying social distancing recommendations, many things about our lives have changed in a matter of weeks. However, some parts of our lives continue. For example, if you and your spouse have decided it is time to end your marriage, you may wonder whether you are able to continue the divorce process online. Minnesota and Wisconsin courts have been very clear about this – you can still file for divorce in both states online. In Minnesota, if you need a hearing, it can be completed with a virtual conference and in Wisconsin, hearings are conducted by phone through the month of April. Lesa Koski is a local divorce attorney and divorce mediator who has transitioned her divorce support services online to help couples during this uncertain time.

It also costs less than the traditional court process, takes less time and generally reduces the overall conflict between the two parties, rather than increasing it. You can settle all types of issues including division of your joint property (house, cars, etc.), custody of your kids and whether spousal or child support is necessary in your case.
