At Sabuco Beck, P.C., we understand how the breakup of a marriage can have a devastating effect on your current finances, as well as your future financial security. Our Will County spousal support attorneys also know that, regardless of the length of your marriage, your income and resources are likely to be closely tied in with those of your spouse. Spousal support, or alimony, provides a way to minimize the most damaging financial effects of divorce, allowing you the time and resources needed to move on with your life.
In any divorce case, marital property and assets will need to be divided between the spouses. In order to accomplish this, each will need to submit financial disclosures, detailing their total income as well as their debts. If it is determined that one of the spouses has fewer resources or significantly less income than the other, an award of spousal support may be granted.
Our Will County spousal support attorneys carefully work with each of our clients during their divorce case to determine whether an award of spousal support may be appropriate. Under Section 504 of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution Act (750 ILCS 5/504), factors the court may consider in making these awards include the following:
In the event that spousal support is awarded, it may be either ongoing or for a limited period. In some situations, support may be ordered to allow the receiving spouse time to further their education or to ‘catch up’ in terms of income or career goals.
