Illinois Spousal Support and Maintenance Attorneys
Experienced Alimony and Maintenance Law Firm in Cook County
Tristano & Tristano, Ltd. can assist you with spousal support, which was previously called alimony, and will let you know if this is applicable to your divorce. Not all divorces require spousal support to be paid and our divorce attorneys will let you know if/how spousal support payments may apply to your case.
How long the maintenance will last can vary from a temporary or “rehabilitative” maintenance to a long-term or “permanent” maintenance. The dissolution of a marriage can have a severe and unfair financial impact on a spouse. If one party had become accustomed to a certain type of lifestyle during their marriage, they may require temporary or permanent spousal support, depending on their specific situation.
Tristano & Tristano, Ltd. can help you figure out how much spousal support will be required and for what period of time the payments will need to be made for. We will help you to get the best possible outcome for your situation.
The court will determine if a spouse will be granted maintenance depending on several factors, which include:
Age of each party
Earning potential and employment situation for each party
Effect of marital responsibilities on earning potential
Health of each party
How long the marriage lasted
Monetary contribution of each party
