Our Illinois alimony attorneys explain in the following article what information Illinois divorce courts use to make decisions on spousal maintenance.
Broadly, courts weigh a number of factors to determine whether maintenance is appropriate. If maintenance is appropriate, courts apply statutory guidelines in cases in which the combined income of the couple is below a certain threshold, and may deviate from the guidelines if the income is above the statutory threshold.
The most challenging and time consuming portion of any divorce proceeding is sorting through the finances.
Dissipation and contribution are often an overlooked component when analyzing marital finances because both concepts deal with money that has already been spent. The key difference between the two concepts lies in how the money was spent. If a spouse spends marital assets for something that only benefits himself or herself, this is dissipation, and the money must be reimbursed to the marital estates. If a spouse spends non-marital assets to benefit the marriage, this is contribution and the spender will be reimbursed.
