– from Donna J. in Greenfield, WI
My husband and I are going through a divorce. Our marriage lasted 11 years. We have three children, ages 10, 8, and 4. Before the marriage, I was a secretary for a short amount of time and received under $4,000 in the first year of marriage. I want to ask the court if I am allowed to stay at home while my children are young. Can I receive maintenance for a large period of time?
