Divorce can have dramatic effects on every area of your life. In terms of your finances, the adjustment to living without your spouse’s income can be particularly devastating. At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., we can advise you on your rights in terms of receiving spousal support, otherwise known as alimony. As professional Joliet spousal support attorneys, we can review your case and let you know if this type of support may be an option in your divorce settlement.
Making the emotional adjustment to a divorce is challenging, but dealing with the changes in your financial situation can be even more difficult. If you previously relied on your spouse’s income, you may be wondering how you will maintain your home or the lifestyle you enjoyed during your marriage.
At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., we are here to provide the professional legal guidance and help you need in these situations. As experienced Joliet spousal support attorneys, we can advise you on whether this may be an option in your particular case. Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to spousal support both during and after your divorce proceedings, either on a limited or more permanent basis. Under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution Act (750 ILCS 5/504), factors the judge will consider in making this type of award include:
Before pursuing this type of compensation in your divorce, our Joliet spousal support attorneys will thoroughly review your case. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does consider spousal support a form of income, so you will want to consider the tax consequences.
