Non-Marital Separation

It has become increasingly common over the years for couples to form committed relationships and live together without getting married. In many cases, this can result in an inter-mixing of money and property and/or the joint accumulation of assets or debts. The same can also often be true in same-sex relationships. In the event of the break-up of people involved in these relationships, there can therefore often be significant legal issues presented.

Since Wisconsin does not recognize so-called "common law marriages," resolution of the legal issues surrounding what for lack of a better term might be described as "non-marital separation" cases can present a complicated and often multi-faceted array of issues and theories.
