Steps on getting a Divorce when we now are in different states?

You can file for divorce in your State and County of Residence if you have resided in Wisconsin for more than six months and in your county of residence if you have resided in that county for more than 30 days. You can serve your husband in his State of last known address. You must first attempt to have him personally served. If that is not possible, after diligent efforts to do so, you can publish notice in the legal publication for the County of his last known residence. You can not request an Order for custody or placement if the children in a Wisconsin legal action if they have not resided in the State of Wisconsin for a period of time in excess of six months because their residence with your mother becomes their home state. Also, the court will respect other orders such as Guardianship Orders for these children.
