– from Scott Z. in Hartford, WI
I want to appeal the maintenance order that was set during my divorce. My ex-wife and I married 11 years ago. We never had kids and we both worked at our jobs for longer than our marriage. At the divorce, the trial court divided the marital estate and pension plans equally. I have no problem with those property divisions. The problem is the court also awarded my wife maintenance and did not set a timeline of how long she would be receiving it. Based off the property division from the marriage and her job, she should not need maintenance from me. Is it smart to file an appeal?
