Does Cheating Affect Alimony?

With Wisconsin being a “no fault” state, infidelity does not help or hurt someone in the judge's final decision on spousal support. In addition, it has no impact on alimony or property and debt division.

Important Factors Courts Consider With Alimony

In Wisconsin, the legislature set out the criteria for the court to consider when awarding a party maintenance (also known as alimony). Maintenance is supposed to be temporary and rehabilitative. However, in long term marriages it can sometimes be collected for the rest of a person’s life. If temporary alimony cannot bring out rehabilitation, then the court can, in proper circumstances, order alimony on a long-term or indefinite amount. If you do not get alimony at the time of the divorce, you cannot get alimony later on.
