Woodridge Divorce attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains spousal maintenance.

Woodridge Family Law Attorney, Woodridge Divorce Lawyer, Woodridge Family Law Lawyer, Woodridge Divorce Attorney

In this article by our Woodridge divorce lawyers, we discuss the factors courts consider to determine whether to award a maintenance in a divorce case, how much of an award and how it will be paid.  Maintenance may be paid in a lump sum or continuing payments on a temporary or permanent basis.  

Divorce courts will attempt to put the parties in a relatively equal position, close to the standard of living they enjoyed during the marriage as possible.  Some of the most important factors are the duration of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, and any sacrifices one spouse made during the marriage for the other spouse's career.

Changes to Woodridge Divorce Laws

Woodridge Divorce Attorney, Kevin O'Flaherty, explains the changes to Illinois divorce laws

Woodridge Family Law Attorney, Woodridge Divorce Lawyer, Woodridge Family Law Lawyer, Woodridge Divorce Attorney

In 2016, several changes were made to the Illinois Marriage and Defense of Marriage Act (the "IMDMA").  The intentions of these changes were to reduce the likelihood of disputes, and to  attempt to bring the Act into line with the modern realities of marriage, divorce and parenting.  

‍The only grounds for divorce is now irreconcilable differences.  Previously,  irreconcilable differences or one of several specific statutory grounds could be filed by parties for divorce.  However, irreconcilable differences lead to a longer required period of living separate and apart than specific grounds (2 years).  Now, the time for living separate and apart is only 6 months, and this can be waived if both parties agree.  

The terms "custodial parent" and "visitation" are now replaced by "allocation of parenting time and responsibility."   Now, four categories of parenting responsibility are divided among the parents:

  • Religious
  • Educational
  • Extra-curricular 
  • Medical responsibility.
