The Wisconsin Court System has created a site to allow you to easily complete and print many Family Court Forms. Please check out the Wisconsin Court System Family law forms assistant.
The Dane County Family Court also has a list of forms, some of which are not on the Wisconsin Court System site. You can find these at https://courts.countyofdane.com/prepare/formFamily
Many of the forms you can download are available in Portable Document Format (.pdf). These forms require a program like FoxIt® Reader or Adobe Acrobat® Reader. You can directly download FoxIt Reader, or go to the download page for Adobe Reader, by clicking on the icons below. When you click to download a form, it may look like nothing happened. Check the download area of your browser to see if the form downloaded.

If you have shared placement, Wisconsin law requires that variable costs shared by the parties be determined based on a list agreed to by the parties, or ordered by the court based upon lists furnished by the parties. Here is the standard form for Green County.

People who are not represented by an attorney are referred to as either “self-represented” or “pro se“. The Wisconsin Court System has created Wisconsin eCourts for self-represented parties. It is an interactive Web site that assists you in filling out forms for a variety of legal issues.
The mandatory Divorce/Annulment Worksheet must be on file with the Clerk of Court before you can schedule a final divorce hearing. Download it
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.
