Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Family — military disability benefits

Eric Peterson appeals an order denying his motion to terminate a provision of a marital settlement agreement (MSA) requiring him to pay half of his military disability benefits to his former wife, Kim Bauer. Peterson contends the MSA unambiguously characterized the disability payments as maintenance, and, as a result, the circuit court was required to terminate them upon Bauer’s remarriage. The circuit court disagreed, ruling that the payments were part of the property division and were not subject to termination when Bauer remarried. We agree with the circuit court’s reasoning and affirm. This opinion will not be published.
