Much like an award of spousal maintenance there isn’t a formula to determine how long a maintenance award will be awarded for. But the court will look at some factors such as the length of the marriage and the standard of living that the parties enjoyed as well as how long it might take for a party to be self-sufficient, to become self-sufficient after the marriage is over.
