People who are not represented by an attorney are referred to as either “self-represented” or “pro se“. The Wisconsin Court System has created the Wisconsin Court System Self Help Family Web Site to help self-represented parties through the divorce process. They have forms for both before and after the final judgment of divorce.
The mandatory Divorce Certificate must be on file with the Clerk of Court before you can schedule a final divorce hearing.
A stipulation is an agreement between the parties to a case. If a stipulation is provided to the Court and the Court approves it, it becomes an order. Stipulations can be used to save time if both of you agree, because you generally don’t have to go in front of the Court Commissioner or Judge unless there is a problem.
If you are filling out a stipulation to modify child support, you must either follow the child support guidelines or give a statement of facts so the Commissioner or Judge can find a good reason to set child support at some other amount.
While it’s a good idea to have a lawyer represent you in a case, you may still want do do your own. Even then, you may find that it’s quicker and easier to do your own divorce if you have someone to help you fill out the forms.
