Divorce and Marriage Law

Can the unemployed wife get spousal support if the marriage was less than 5 years in Wisconsin and the husband abandoned the marriage?

Not likely. * Wisconsin is a community property state. Therefore

a spouse is entitled to an equal share of property, income and

assets regardless if said spouse was employed during the marriage

or how long the marriage lasted.
