Maintenance, formerly called alimony, is often one of the most contentious issues in a divorce. Maintenance is a payment or stream of payments one spouse makes to the other for support after the divorce is finalized. Currently, Illinois law does not provide guidelines to set either the amount or duration of maintenance. However, courts consider a number of statutory factors in awarding maintenance. The Wirtz Law Firm is skilled in utilizing those factors to the benefit of each client, thereby achieving the most favorable results.
