In Re Marriage of Sellers v. Sellers


201 Wis. 2d 578, 549 N.W.2d 481 (WI Ct. App., 1996)


Shirking does not require a finding that a spouse deliberately reduced earnings. It is sufficient that the court finds the employment decision was both voluntary and unreasonable under the circumstances. The employment decision may be unreasonable even though it is well intended. Here, trial court affirmed for imputing income where employment decision was made 7 years before the divorce started.
