If the wife is qualified then there is no need to maintenance. There is no specific formula for grant of maintenance. The liability of spouse is vital to decide the amount. If children are then maintenance amount differs.

It depends on the petition filled by wife and contents. If u have a baby and if your is seeking maintenance for her as well with baby then it depends on her expectations. Court view and judge discretion also plays vital role.
