Divorce and Family Law
Maintenance, Alimony, and Spousal Support
Maintenance, also known as alimony, is spousal support that one ex-spouse pays to the other ex-spouse. The Illinois Maintenance Laws contain a formula by which the amount of maintenance payments are calculated, and whether the maintenance payments will be temporary maintenance or permanent maintenance. In most cases, the amount of maintenance is based on the net income of each person, and the duration of Maintenance is based on the length of the marriage. Judges determine whether maintenance is appropriate based on factors including the income, education, health, needs, and earning capacities of each person.
