Kendall County Alimony Lawyer

Experienced Spousal Support Attorney in Aurora, Kendall County, DuPage County, and Kane County

While it is not applicable to every case, alimony (also called spousal support or spousal maintenance) can ensure fairness and financial well-being in the wake of a divorce. Depending on each family's situation, a court will make determinations as to appropriateness of alimony. It is important to realize that there are no state guidelines that determine alimony. A court will look at a range of factors when making a determination, including parties':

  • Need
  • Ability to pay
  • Length of marriage

Based on these factors, a court will make an assessment as to the appropriateness of alimony, the amounts to be paid and for how long payments are to be made. Courts are less likely to grant alimony in the wake of shorter marriages or ones where parties have comparable earning potential. If alimony is determined to be suitable, the court will delve deeper into incomes, earning potential, skills, training and other factors.

It is important to realize that alimony can be structured in a variety of ways in terms of durations and modifiability. These calculations and determinations can be immensely complex. If you are involved in alimony issues, it is critical to reach out to expert counsel who will work toward an ideal resolution, regardless of your circumstance.
