In Interest of A.L.W.


153 Wis. 2d 412, 451 N.W.2d 416 (1990)


Holding that the court can consider the resources of a non-liable spouse in determining a liable person’s ability to pay for a dependent relative’s care is consistent with Poindexter and with Burger. Those cases held that the non-obligated spouse’s income can be taken into consideration in determining the liable spouse’s ability to pay, but cannot be used to satisfy the obligation.
