2005 WI App 211, 287 Wis. 2d 180, 704 N.W. 2d 371 (WI Ct. App., 2005)
Unlike in DeLaMatter, in this case, wife did not refuse treatment for alcoholism. Unsuccessful treatment is not the same as refusing treatment. By reducing maintenance that did not come close providing wife with adequate support, the trial court did not give full play to the support and fairness objectives of maintenance.
