Experienced Bloomington Spousal Maintenance


Our attorneys have more than 53 years of combined experience in divorce and

family law. Our familiarity with the local courts is a key advantage to clients

because there are no statutory guidelines — spousal maintenance awards can

vary from judge to judge.

Our job is to give the court an accurate picture of the parties' finances and other

factors. The judge considers income disparity, sources of income, education and

employability, age, health, the standard of living during the marriage, and

sacrifices such as putting the other party through college or staying home to

raise children.

The court may award temporary maintenance while the divorce is pending to

ensure that a disadvantaged spouse can make ends meet and afford legal

representation. Spousal maintenance after divorce is typically rehabilitative — a

few years of support to go back to school or establish financial independence.

However, in longer term marriages, the court may award permanent

maintenance (alimony), which will continue until remarriage or death.
