How Does Alimony Work in Wisconsin?
In Wisconsin, there is no formula to determine the frequency and/or amount of alimony payments. This means that payments can last indefinitely or just for a period of time. To get a fair award, the court considers factors such as the length of the marriage, the age and health of the spouses, their ability to earn, and the property they own. The courts also evaluate any tax consequences that will result from alimony and whether the requesting spouse can achieve a standard of living close to what they had during the marriage. Please note that the court can look at any factors that may affect this payment.

When Can Changes Be Made to Spousal Support or Overall Termination?
A spouse can request temporary maintenance during the divorce period (meaning before it’s finalized). This helps the requesting spouse cover expenses during this “in-between” time. After a divorce is finalized, a payment modification can be made if there is a significant change in circumstances – whether the loss of a job or increase in someone’s cost of living. The court may also change payments if someone inherits money. Payments can be terminated altogether when the receiving spouse remarries or when the paying spouse dies. However, these payments don’t always stop immediately after re-marriage, as the paying spouse must give proof of the marriage and get a court order to stop payments.
