Spousal Maintenance / Alimony

i-spousalmaintenancealimonyWhether one divorcing spouse should make ongoing payments to help support the other is often an intensely contested issue. Under Illinois law, judges have the latitude to consider many factors when deciding whether to award and order spousal maintenance (formerly known as alimony).

Effective Strategies And Rigorous Preparation To Protect Your Financial Future
