Is It Possible to Receive Maintenance and Still Be a Homemaker?

There are many things a court will consider when it comes to a request like this. One of those things are the duration of the marriage. The more time you have invested into the marriage as a homemaker, the higher the amount of maintenance you are entitled to.

The income of your husband, you and your children's standard of living, and your ability to work are also points of consideration, among others.

In the case of Hartung v. Hartung, 102 Wis. 2d 58, 306 N.W.2d 16 (1981), the court ultimately ruled that the mother was entitled to prolonged maintenance due to the fact that the decision to remain a homemaker is a career choice just like any other career.

It is best that you contact a family law attorney to go over all of the details of your specific circumstances. He/she would be better able to advise you of the possible outcomes based on the information you provide.
