Our Wheaton family attorneys in this article, discuss the factors courts could consider when determining whether to award maintenance in a divorce case, the amount of the award, and how it will be paid.  Maintenance can be paid in lump sum or continuing payments on a temporary or permanent basis.  

Divorce courts attempt to put both parties of a divorce in an equal position close to the standard of living they enjoyed during the marriage as possible.  Important factors considered in the determination of awarding maintenance are the duration of the marriage, earning capacity of each spouse, and the sacrifices one spouse made during the marriage for the other spouse's career.
