What is the purpose of alimony in Wisconsin?

Alimony is paid from one spouse to another after a divorce to ensure both parties maintain their marital standard of living. In cases where one spouse left the workforce to raise a family or one spouse worked full time while the other completed their education, alimony may be awarded to support the dependent party. There are two types of alimony a spouse can receive in Wisconsin: limited duration and indefinite.

 

Limited Duration Alimony

Limited term spousal maintenance, or limited duration alimony, is awarded when the dependent spouse can potentially become self-supporting. Alimony is awarded while the dependent party builds up the education and skills necessary to become employed.

Limited term alimony is common in marriages where one spouse left a job to raise children and needs time to land a job. A judge will assign a beginning and end date. If the recipient remains dependent at this date, the court will evaluate whether an extension is appropriate.

 

Indefinite Alimony

Indefinite spousal maintenance, or indefinite alimony, is most relevant in long-term marriages. The dependent spouse’s absence from the workforce may make it difficult or impossible to find a job. Indefinite alimony ensures the dependent party maintains financial stability regardless of age, absence from the workforce, or health issues.

What determines if a spouse gets alimony?

There are several factors a judge uses to determine whether a spouse if eligible for alimony, including:

  • Duration of marriage
  • Marital standard of living
  • Child support payments
  • Property division
  • Education
  • Earning capacity
  • Mental and physical health
  • Tax consequences
