2005 WI 54, 280 Wis. 2d 253, 694 N.W.2d 452 (WI Ct. App., 2005)
Circuit court erred by concluding that spendthrift provision of Wis. Stat. §62.63 (4) bars it from considering City of Milwaukee pension as part of the marital estate. While the court cannot directly divide the pension, it has discretionary authority to order a payout or other orders to effectuate an equitable division of property.
