– from Patricia U. in West Milwaukee, WI
I have been married for nearly 20 years. Even though I do have a diploma and prior work experience, I have not worked for the last 15 years of the marriage. My husband is a successful business owner and decided to be the sole provider for the both of us. We decided that I would be a homemaker. When we decided to get divorced several years ago we agreed that he would pay maintenance for a set amount of time, whereas during that time, I would take classes and become self-supporting. Despite working incredibly hard for it, I have yet to gain a full-time position. My time is running out for the maintenance. Can I have the maintenance award modified?
