Illinois Spousal Maintenance Laws

Spousal maintenance (also known as alimony) is not awarded to punish one party for wrongful conduct or marital fault. Rather, the goal of spousal maintenance is to provide one spouse with the financial support necessary to continue living at a similar standard of living or to provide opportunity for a spouse to obtain employment after a significant period out of the workforce. Although spousal maintenance may be ordered either temporarily or permanently, it is uncommon for Illinois family courts to order permanent or long-term spousal support.

In Illinois, there is a formula that determines the amount and duration of spousal support or alimony payments. However, when determining whether to award maintenance, there are a number of factors the court will evaluate, ranging from the length of the marriage to the needs of one spouse and the ability of the other spouse to pay. In certain cases, spousal maintenance or alimony may be offset by allocation of property in a property settlement agreement.
