Exploring prenuptial agreements

Divorce and retirement savings

Married couples in Wisconsin who get a divorce are likely to find that the process can be draining emotionally. They should also be prepared for how it will affect them financially.

Instead, each party will need to take action on a series of administrative tasks to ensure that the agreement is actually implemented.
