In Wisconsin each county determines what is required to be submitted with a divorce petition. In most counties, a joint petition for divorce requires a joint petition form and a joint confidential petition addendum form. If the divorce petition is not filed jointly, the petitioner must file a summons, a petition, a confidential petition addendum, an order to show cause, an affidavit for temporary order and a financial disclosure statement.
