Kendall County Alimony and Maintenance Attorneys

Alimony and Maintenance Lawyers Serving Oswego, IL and the Surrounding Communities

One of the most hotly contested matters in a divorce is often the issue of spousal maintenance, which is also called alimony. Because matters of spousal maintenance are decided fairly subjectively, it is important to have an attorney who is skilled and knowledgeable in handling these matters representing your interests. At the Kendall County divorce law firm of Goostree Law Group, we are experienced in handling spousal maintenance matters from both sides. We strongly advocate for our clients financial interests and have a thorough knowledge of the law to support our arguments both in and out of court.

Experienced Representation in Maintenance Matters in Kendall County

Obtaining maintenance after a divorce can be an uphill battle, but it is not unachievable. Whether you are seeking maintenance or seeking to prevent your former spouse from securing it, experienced counsel is essential to fighting for your rights and interests. We ground our representation in the facts of the case and knowledge of applicable laws in order to create the strongest possible position for our clients.

There are numerous factors that the courts consider when making determinations about spousal maintenance awards including:

  • The financial circumstances and needs of both parties;
  • The present and future earning capacity of each party, including any possible impairments or delays to earning capacity;
  • The length of the marriage;
  • The standard of living enjoyed during the marriage;
  • Age and physical and emotional health of both parties;
  • Contributions from one party to the other in education or other career advancement opportunities; and
  • Prenuptial or postnuptial agreement.

The court will also consider if one party is able to acquire the additional education or training to support himself or herself, and how much time would be required to do so. Maintenance can be, and often is, awarded on a temporary basis until the receiving party can earn enough salary to stand alone financially.

If you are involved in a divorce or post-divorce maintenance matter, contact us at 630-882-5668 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your options.
