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:
- The length of the marriage;
- Each spouse’s age and overall health;
- Their current income and their earning potential;
- Any non-marital assets either spouse possesses;
- Any career or educational sacrifices either spouse made in support of the other or to provide care for children of the marriage;
- The quality of life enjoyed by the spouse’s during the marriage;
- The existence of any pre or post marital agreements addressing these issues.
In the event 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.
