What you need to know
Even though the relationship between you and your spouse has changed and you may no longer be living together, until you are legally divorced, you are still married. The legal ramifications of being married vary from state to state, but generally speaking, until you are divorced you and your spouse have certain rights and obligations to one another. In general, until you are divorced not only can you not remarry but also anything you obtain may be subject to a claim of ownership, in whole or in part, by your spouse, and the future ownership of assets and property already obtained may be unclear.

Under Wisconsin law, each parent has a duty to provide financial support for his or her minor children. Child support is based on the Wisconsin Child Support Formula. The Wisconsin divorce court considers the gross monthly income of both parents, special medical or educational needs of the child, the cost of health insurance, the cost of day care and the cost of providing support to others (such as parents or minor children who are not the product of the marriage).
