Is There a Maintenance Chart or Calculation?

Unfortunately, at this point in time in Missouri, there is no chart or standardized formula to determine maintenance. Unlike child support, which is typically based on the Form 14 in Missouri, a maintenance form has not been created. One of the reasons for this is that the state law requires a Judge to analyze a number of different factors when considering maintenance, which could not possibly be narrowed down to a chart. Some Judges do have informal calculations they use, such as the Goeke chart.
