November 27, 2023

The Maricopa County Bar Association published an article by Karen Wohlgemuth in the latest issue of its official publication, the Maricopa Lawyer.

The article, Family Law Update: New Spousal Maintenance Guidelines and Calculator, is an expansion of her firm blog post. In both pieces, Karen outlines updates Arizona has made to spousal maintenance awards.

“The new spousal maintenance guidelines will hopefully promote settlements and provide guidance for the parties by having a greater understanding of the potential award.” Karen said. “In addition, we hope to see greater consistency from the bench and adequate awards that a claiming party can rely on to become self-sufficient.”

At Spencer Fane, Karen’s family law practice includes matters related to divorce, premarital agreements, child support, spousal maintenance, grandparent visitation, and post-decree modifications handled through trial, mediation, arbitrations, and other manners of alternative dispute resolution. She also brings experience in civil and commercial litigation.
