217 Wis. 2d 22, 577 N.W.2d 32 (WI Ct. App., 1998)
1) Where parties’ stipulation sets out that maintenance is to be determined by wife’s schedule C income, court cannot rewrite a clear and unambiguous contract. (2) Husband had burden to show the purposes of limited term maintenance had been satisfied.
