Chen v. Warner

Kent A. Tess-Mattner

Case Conclusion Date:May 6, 2005

Practice Area:Divorce & Separation

Outcome:Successful appeal before WI Supreme Court

Description:The Wisconsin Supreme Court affirmed the circuit court's conclusion that a physician-mother's post-judgment decision to quit her employment to stay home with the children (with which whom she had shared equal placement with the physician-father), was not shirking and, thus, entitled her to an increase in child support from her former spouse, who is also a physician. I represented the mother before the Wisconsin Supreme Court, including full briefing and oral argument.
