Ladwig v. Ladwig


2010 WI App78, 325 Wis. 2d 497, 785 N.W. 2d 664 (WI Ct. App. 2010)


Trial court properly exercised its discretion for not deviating from guidelines which required child support of $8,455 per month, despite father’s argument that it exceeded the needs of the children.  Percentage standards can be applied to a high-income payor.  However, trial court erred by crediting father for amounts expended in support of mother’s daughter from a prior marriage.
