In this case, Ms. Livorsi successfully represented a Husband who was ordered to pay a limited duration of maintenance. Normally, people think of maintenance (aka alimony) as an all or nothing idea if you go to trial. In this case, Husband presented testimony from a vocational rehab expert that Wife would be able to return to the work force making sufficient money to meet her reasonable needs with only a few years of school. The trial court gave her maintenance for the time necessary for her to finish schooling, with a few months to spare. Wife wanted maintenance until she remarried or became self-sufficient (thus making Husband come back to Court to get it).
