Dupage County Spousal Maintenance Awards Explained

dupage spousal maintenance lawyers

DuPage County alimony attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explain how spousal maintenance works in DuPage County, Illinois.

dupage spousal maintenance lawyers

Our DuPage spousal maintenance lawyers explain how DuPage County domestic relations court determine whether to award spousal maintenance in divorce cases, and how courts determine the amount and duration of the award.  We explain the factors that divorce courts weigh in order to determine whether alimony is appropriate in a particular divorce case, including the income and assets of each party, the needs of each party, the duration of the marriage, and the standard of living during the marriage.  

If the divorce court determines that spousal maintenance is appropriate, the court must next decide whether to follow statutory guidelines to determine the amount and duration of alimony.  Courts typically apply statutory guidelines where the combined income of the couple’s gross annual income is less than $250,000.00 and neither spouse has children from a prior marriage.  Our DuPage maintenance attorneys explain when courts can deviate from these guidelines and how the guidelines are applied, including how spousal maintenance awards are calculated, how gross income is determined for the purpose of alimony.  Finally, our DuPage alimony lawyers explain how courts calculate the duration of a maintenance award under the guidelines.

How Maintenance Payments Affect Child Support Obligations

DuPage spousal maintenance lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains how spousal maintenance payments affect child support obligations in Illinois.

dupage alimony attorney

Our DuPage alimony attorneys explain how spousal maintenance payments impact child support obligations.  Child support in Illinois is based on each parent’s relative net income.  The greater your net income relative to the other parent the greater your child support obligation will be if you are the payor and the less you will receive if you are the recipient.  If you are the recipient of child support, any maintenance payments you receive from anyone will raise your net income and reduce the amount of child support you receive.  If you are the party making child support payments, only maintenance payments to the same person who is receiving the child support will reduce your net income and therefore the amount of child support you are obligated to pay.
