Changes In Wisconsin Maintenance (Alimony) Statute
There are some recent changes in the maintenance statute (formerly called alimony) in the State of Wisconsin. 2013 Wisconsin ACT 209, went into effect on April 8, 2014.. There is a new section that specifically states that unless already terminated for another reason, maintenance granted under the statute terminates upon the death of the payee or the payer, whichever occurs first. The second change in the statute requires notification if the payee gets remarried. Each order for family support or maintenance payments must include an order requiring the payee to notify the court and the payer within 10 business days of the payee’s remarriage. Upon the court receiving such notice, on application by the payer, with notice to the payee and upon proof of the payee’s remarriage, or upon receiving notice from the payee of their remarriage, the order for maintenance payments shall be vacated by the court.
