A cautionary tale for stay-at-home spouses

It is a common story in Wisconsin. After deciding to start a family, the spouse who makes less money decides to stay home and take care of the kids, while the spouse making more money becomes the sole breadwinner. At first, this works seamlessly. One parent focuses on the money and the career, while the other focuses on family and home.

Collecting alimony payments for post-2018 divorces

Alimony is one of the most controversial topics when it comes to divorce in Wisconsin. Some spouses feel bitter about paying spousal support, while others may feel awkward or guilty about asking for it. Some people may believe that homemakers and supporters are entitled to continued support from the breadwinner, while others believe it perpetuates a cycle of dependency that the former homemaker now has no incentive to break free from.

Infidelity and spousal support

In recent decades, infidelity has become increasingly common in marriages. When a spouse cheats, this often results in a divorce. However, many different questions may arise, both for the spouse who was cheated on and the one responsible for having an affair. This can affect a person’s life in various ways, but in this write-up, we will look into some of the ways in which it can impact spousal support.

Strategic ways to minimize the stress of paying alimony

When you first got married, divorcing your spouse was probably not something you anticipated and planned for. As such, coping with the challenges of separating from each other can often instill intense emotions and concerns about your future. At Brazil & Benske, LLC, we are committed to helping families through the important decisions that come with getting divorced.
