Marital Property Planning
Wisconsin is one of nine states in the country to generally treat property acquired during marriage as "community" or "marital" property. Consequently, with numerous nuances, each spouse is deemed to own an undivided one-half interest in the assets of the spouses acquired during marriage. This presents unique consequences and planning opportunites. Several of our attorneys have an in-depth familiarity with Wisconsin's marital property laws and regularly use that knowledge to ensure their clients' assets are treated consistent with their expectations.
