Determining Spousal Maintenance Awards

Our attorneys have helped many clients with spousal maintenance issues by offering them informative legal guidance. Since Illinois laws regarding spousal maintenance have changed from considering a broad range of factors when making a determination on how maintenance should be awarded to a formulaic approach based on incomes of the couple and duration of marriage, it’s important to speak with our skilled attorneys to advocate on your behalf. Spousal support may be granted based on:

  • (Marriage 0-5 years) x (20%)
  • (Marriage 5-10 years) x (40%)
  • (Marriage 10-15 years) x (60%)
  • (Marriage 15-20 years) x (80%)
  • Marriages of 20+ years – court shall order either permanent maintenance or the length of the marriage

FORMULA FOR MAINTENANCE AWARD: AMOUNT– (30% of the payer’s income) – (20% of the receiver’s income) *The receiver’s new income cannot exceed 40% of the parties’ combined income.
