            CLICK ON THE LINKS AT LEFT for general guidance and tips about your divorce or family law case. 

            For additional help, the Wisconsin Court System Self-Help website provides a guide to divorce and legal separation in Wisconsin and takes you through a series of questions, filling in the forms necessary to start or finalize such an action.  There is also information about whether you should try to proceed without an attorney and answers to questions you may have about the process.

            Several short "Moving On" Divorce Videos, produced by the Dane County Bar Association, help explain the divorce process and will give you an idea of what to expect in court.

            If you still have unanswered questions, a FREE ATTORNEY is also available one day each month to help unrepresented parties in family law cases at the Dodge County Justice Facility.  The attorney cannot represent you in Court, but can give you information and guidance about your case.  YOU MUST CALL THE CLERK OF COURTS AT 920-386-3570 TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE ATTORNEY.

            Finally, for questions about family law forms and procedures, filing a pleading, or scheduling a hearing, contact the Dodge County Clerk of Courts at 920-386-3570.  However, neither the Clerk of Courts nor the Family Court Commissioner can give you legal advice.
