What is alimony? 

Alimony payments are put in place after a divorce in order to preserve the marital lifestyle of a former spouse. In cases where one spouse earned significantly less, left their job to raise children or paid for the other spouse’s education, alimony may be awarded so the dependent spouse can maintain their pre-divorce lifestyle.

Limited term

Spousal Maintenance

Limited-term spousal maintenance, also known as limited alimony, is typically ordered when one spouse has given up their career in order to stay home and raise children. There are a few different varieties of limited-term spousal maintenance.

  • Rehabilitative alimony is ordered in situations in which the party receiving alimony intends to become self-sufficient and will only receive alimony for a specific period of time until they are financially stable.
  • Reimbursement alimony is ordered in situations in which a spouse who provided financial assistance to the other in order to obtain a professional degree receives alimony payments to reimburse the education costs.
  • Limited duration alimony is alimony ordered to be paid for a specific period of time, and the alimony is terminated when the period has concluded. Limited-duration alimony is usually ordered when a marriage does not last long enough to justify long-term alimony payments.



Spousal Maintenance

Indefinite spousal maintenance, or permanent alimony, is typically ordered when one spouse is deemed unable to become financially independent because of their age, health or extended absence from the workforce. Permanent alimony is paid until a life-changing event, such as death or remarriage, makes alimony no longer necessary. 

What qualifies a spouse for alimony?

Before getting approved to receive alimony payments, the judge will consider several factors to determine whether or not you are eligible.

  • Whether you were legally married
  • The length of the marriage
  • Your current and future earning potential
  • Your financial role in the marriage
  • Child custody judgements
  • Your age and health

A combination of those factors will be considered when the judge is determining whether you are eligible for alimony, as well as how much alimony will be granted and the duration of the payments.

Our experienced family law firm in Glendale can advise you on spousal maintenance laws in Wisconsin and guide you through the alimony eligibility process. With extensive knowledge of spousal support laws and spousal maintenance statutes, our Glendale spousal support attorneys will craft the strongest argument to verify your eligibility and secure the maximum alimony benefit.

When can a spouse sue for alimony? 

If you and your spouse are not able to come to an agreement on alimony terms during mediation, you may petition the court for alimony. Our spousal maintenance law firm will help guide you through the process and make sure you have a strong case. The independent spouse will then be served a notice for alimony. If your spouse does not agree with your alimony request, you will need to prove to the judge you were financially dependent on your spouse during the marriage, and the judge will ultimately make the final decision on the terms and duration of alimony payments. Divergent Family Law’s Glendale spousal maintenance attorneys can advise you on spousal support laws and help represent you for the most favorable alimony terms possible.
