In Re Marriage of Steiner v. Steiner


2004 WI App 169, 276 Wis. 2d 290, 687 N.W.2d 740 (WI Ct. App., 2004)


Trial court did not err by treating husband’s sick leave account as an “other economic circumstance” justifying an unequal division of estate. Account had uncertain value, similar to an unvested stock option. While under Preiss, it cannot be divided because it does not have a fair market value, the court can still use it as a background consideration in determining an equitable property division.
