A number of factors are used to determine whether spousal maintenance is granted to a spouse and, if so, how much and how long. These factors include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Marital assets
  • Marital debts
  • Whether the recipient spouse is/was a homemaker
  • Education and earnings potential of recipient spouse
  • Disability or medical condition

Different types of spousal maintenance are granted depending on the factors listed above. For example, for marriages in the 10-20 year range, temporary maintenance would likely be considered appropriate. For marriages that lasted more than 20 years, the court would be more likely to consider granting permanent maintenance. Rehabilitative maintenance could be granted to a spouse who needs assistance while pursuing an education or employment that will allow him or her to achieve self-sufficiency.
