Walworth County Clerk, Wisconsin

Recommended Posts

I am an attorney licensed in Wisconsin and Minnesota. I think the quickest and easiest thing is just to provide the letter to the clerk. Even if the clerk doesn't have authority to ask for the letter (and I didn't research whether or not she has authority), is it worth it to get into it with the clerk? You can't fight city hall, and even when you can, you won't make friends. My county has a sample letter of sponsorship on their website : http://www.co.saint-...SPONSORSHIP.pdf.

The clerk may be trying to cover herself so she is not in violation of sec. 765.30(2)(b), which is punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 and or up to 9 months in jail. See http://nxt.legis.sta...tes/13857/13881.

Sad I would have to suggest this but in the case of more ministers who might need to come to Wisconsin are you up to having them request sponcership from you?

I doubt it would be a substantial burden to fill in a name and sign your own on a preprinted form and fax/mail this to the other ministers who would likely offer to pay for postage if needed.

the second link failed and may need to be updated.

I do that as referenced here.

As does the original poster.

I see you ask if they are willing to do some legal work for the church; but I missed that you implied they do the documents specifically.

Notably, the first poster was asking in general and I meant to be specific to the attorney friend posting previously in forum.

but anyway I guess it all comes down to the same question and hopefully the same answer.

The link in Rev. Joe's post is my website. The site has the information. It can also be found elsewhere in the forum archives, and in my Yahoo group. I am pretty well connected now for this process, and wrote probably 2-3 hundred letters this year.(I haven't counted yet..) I am one of a handful of people to whom HQ refers requests that come in for this service. It is the bulk of my ministry, at the moment.
