Family – maintenance

Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Family – maintenance — income

Amy Brown challenges the maintenance award in the judgment divorcing her from Scott Brown. We agree with Amy that the circuit court misused its discretion in two respects: (1) the court did not consider Scott’s employment bonuses as part of his income for purposes of setting maintenance and (2) in setting maintenance, the court accepted Scott’s budget which included tuition and other expenses for the parties’ adult, college-age child and post-high school education expenses for the younger child without making the necessary findings to support that decision. Accordingly, we reverse the judgment of divorce and remand to the circuit court for a determination of maintenance under the prevailing law. This opinion will not be published.
