Schaumburg Alimony Attorney

Schaumburg Spousal Support Attorney

Experienced Barrington Spousal Maintenance Lawyer Helps Clients Reach Resolution

Determining who will or will not receive alimony (also called spousal maintenance) is a complex decision that is not determined by state statutes, like child support. Alimony decisions are made at the discretion of the family court judge, after considering a number of factors presented by each client's attorney. An effective presentation of the facts can make a big difference in the outcome of an alimony case.

The Illinois divorce lawyers at Anderson and Associates, P.C. represent men and women who are seeking to get or to avoid spousal maintenance in a divorce proceeding in family court in Cook County, Lake County, Kane County, Will County, or McHenry County.

When you need effective legal representation in court, contact Anderson & Associates or call 847-995-9999.

Experience You Can Count on in Court

Anderson and Associates, P.C. has more than 30 years of experience dealing with spousal support cases. Our attorneys frequently work with clients to help them negotiate an appropriate support agreement. If an agreement cannot be reached, we are strong advocates for you in family court.

Factors the Family Court Judge Will Consider

Many issues will be considered when the judge arrives at a decision about whether to grant spousal support:

  • Income and property of each party
  • Needs of each party
  • Present and anticipated future earnings of each party
  • Standard of living established during marriage
  • Age, physical and emotional condition of both parties
  • Whether any valid premarital agreement or postnuptial agreement existed between the parties
  • Other factors that the courts find equitable and just

If the judge agrees to order spousal maintenance, the two issues in question will be the amount of spousal support and the duration (how long support will continue). The duration of spousal support is closely linked to the length of the marriage.
