Spousal Maintenance (Alimony)

For those involved in a divorce, maintenance, also known as alimony, is an important element to consider. You may be counting on such support to help make ends meet. How much support should you expect to receive? On the other hand, you may be concerned about your obligation to pay support. How much will you need to pay each month? For how long?

We can help you find answers to these questions and others regarding divorce. Our firm is dedicated to helping families resolve alimony, child support, and other important issues surrounding divorce. Goddard & Malmquist has been helping individuals and couples throughout the greater Chicago area settle spousal maintenance matters for many years.

Illinois Alimony/Spousal Maintenance

In Illinois, spousal support is based on an analysis of 12 factors, which include the needs of both spouses, as well as the ability to pay pursuant to 750 ILCS 5/504 and guideline calculations. We can help by sitting down with you and your spouse and attempting to reach an amicable agreement. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, we will aggressively pursue the matter in court and fight for what we believe is right.
