Spousal Maintenance/Alimony

If you are like many people going through a divorce, one of your primary concerns is whether or not you will be able to maintain the same quality of life or, on the other hand, that you will have to pay too much to your spouse. Spousal maintenance laws, also known as alimony, can help you protect your quality of life.

Spousal Maintenance Attorneys In Cook County, Illinois

When spousal support is an issue in a divorce there are several factors that must be considered to determine the amount and duration of a support award, including:

  • The income and property available to each party
  • Whether there is an ability for a party to earn income from assets
  • The needs of each party

  • How the age, physical and emotional condition of each party impacts his or her ability to earn a living
  • The standard of living enjoyed by the parties during the marriage
  • The duration of the marriage
  • Employability of the spouse seeking support

A judge has some discretion in deciding whether or not to award spousal support in a divorce case. As experienced attorneys, we can help to develop a strategy that will seek to protect your interest in either receiving or being ordered to pay alimony.
