In Re Marriage of Poncek v. Poncek


148 Wis. 2d 167, 434 N.W.2d 813 (WI Ct. App., 1984)


Because husband had actual notice of the divorce hearing (even subpoenaing his wife to trial and requesting an adjournment), failure to serve an order for appearance was harmless. The trial court could properly proceed with the trial because the husband deliberately chose not to appear.
