Frequently Asked Questions
What impact does cohabitation have on spousal support in Chicago?
In Chicago, proof that the receiving spouse is cohabiting with a new partner can be grounds to seek a modification or termination of spousal support. The court may suspend or reduce payments if the supported ex-spouse is essentially being supported by the new live-in partner. However, merely dating would not warrant changes to the existing Chicago alimony order.
What are common negotiation mistakes to avoid regarding spousal support?
Common mistakes to avoid when negotiating spousal support in a Chicago divorce include failing to forecast future financial needs, overlooking tax implications, blindly agreeing to inadequate terms just to settle quickly, failing to disclose assets/income, or making threats about support during custody disputes. Consult closely with an experienced Chicago divorce lawyer regarding reasonable support proposals.
Does spousal support end upon remarriage in Chicago?
Under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act, spousal support obligations in Chicago generally terminate upon the receiving spouse's remarriage or death of either party. However, the settlement agreement or final judgement can specify otherwise if agreed to. Permanent maintenance may continue despite remarriage.
