How will the Court determine if I have to pay maintenance or if I will receive maintenance?

Spousal support or maintenance is awarded to a spouse to assist them in getting back on their feet after a divorce. The award is different for each case and will depend on the length of the marriage, the standard of living each spouse was accustomed to during the marriage, the financial resources of the parties, and the earning capacity of each spouse. While each spouse has an obligation under Missouri law to become self-supporting, the Court will review the facts unique to your case to determine if some form of spousal support is necessary.
