River Falls Spousal Support Lawyer

During divorce, one of the most contentious issues many couples encounter is that of spousal maintenance, which is more commonly known as alimony or spousal support. Indeed, while the primary goal of spousal maintenance is to ensure divorcing spouses maintain their predivorce standard of living, many couples disagree as to what level of support is actually needed to achieve this goal.

If you are currently considering divorce, or are already in the midst of one, and have concerns regarding spousal maintenance, the Weber Law Office in River Falls can help. With nearly two decades of legal experience, I, attorney Julie Weber, can assist by answering any questions you may have as well as provide you with the personalized service you deserve. I understand how divorce can impact your life, which is why I will do everything I can to help guide you through this difficult process.

Factors Used When Determining Spousal Maintenance

If, during divorce, you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse are unable to come to an agreement regarding spousal maintenance, it is likely that the court will step in to resolve the dispute.

Typically, when making an alimony determination, a Wisconsin court may consider several factors, including:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • The earning capacity of the spouse seeking spousal maintenance, taking into account education as well as time away from the job market
  • The age and health of each spouse
  • The division of property between the spouses
  • The tax consequences to each spouse
  • Any existing prenuptial or premarital agreements

However, this list of factors is by no means an exclusive one. In fact, Wisconsin law expressly states that a court may take into account any factor it deems relevant when deciding issues of spousal maintenance.

Additionally, if a spouse is awarded both spousal maintenance and child support, the court may group the two payments into one financial obligation known as family support.
