Function of Office of Family Court Commissioner
My role is primarily judicial in nature, and includes the following responsibilities: (1) presiding over the case up until the time of trial, and (2) providing certain information and services to you pursuant to Wisconsin law.    The Office of Family Court Commissioner cannot give legal advice or assist the parties in preparing documents, and will not communicate on the issues with the parties outside of a properly motioned court hearing.  I would urge you to retain an attorney, but you are not required to do so by law.
Information from Office of Family Court Commissioner
This office can provide certain services to you through Information Sessions that you can voluntarily attend. Contact the Clerk of Circuit Court for exact date, time and place of sessions at which you can learn about:
  • Practice and Procedures to obtain a Temporary Order
  • Issuance and effect of temporary orders
  • How you can access the law on a given family issue
  • Arranging for Parenting Classes
  • Arranging for Mediation Services
Motions for Economic Relief
It is our policy that all motions requesting economic relief, i.e., maintenance and/or child support, should be supported by a financial disclosure statement. If evidence of income and expenses is not presented at the motion hearing, the court may not enter economic relief. Please present the following documents at the temporary order hearing:
  • Financial Disclosure Statement (showing income, expenses, debts and assets)
  • Wage income of both parties
  • Copy of most recent income tax return
