From Your Assets To Your Finances, We Are Here To Help
Because Illinois is a “no-fault state,” which means when parties decide to divorce, neither of the spouses is “at fault,” you do not need to state the reasons why you have decided to divorce your spouse in the petition for dissolution of marriage. Both parties will need to disclose their current financial situation, and, in some cases, their past financial information will also have to be exchanged. This can be used to determine child support payments and/or spousal maintenance. It also helps split up your assets.
Spousal maintenance, previously known as alimony, may become necessary for a few different reasons. If one of the spouses lacks sufficient income to support themselves or there is a significant disparity between the spouses’ incomes, a judge can order the spouse who earns more income to support the “less-earning” spouse. Some of the factors evaluated by the judge include the duration of the marriage, the income and property of each party, age and the standard of living established during the marriage. Understandably, this is a lot to take in, and it’s easy to become quickly overwhelmed. Use our knowledge and skill to your advantage.
