Terms Related to Spousal Maintenance / Alimony

Clients come to us with questions about how spousal maintenance is determined and awarded. The issue is complicated by tax considerations, the amount of marital property and how it is divided, and the potential of both spouses to become self-supporting. Matters like the previous standard of living; length of the marriage; and ages, health status, and educational attainment of both parties are also taken into account. The court has the authority to allocate temporary support for one spouse for the duration of the divorce proceedings, until matters are finalized.

Sometimes clients think that because the other spouse was to blame for the divorce, they deserve support. In Illinois, support is not determined by the behavior of either spouse, but by the need of one spouse and the ability of the other to pay it. We discuss this, and all other matters related to a possible support request, with our clients. Then, armed with this information, and the recent changes in the law, the educated client can make informed decisions about their next steps.
