Modify Spousal Support Orders in Illinois

modify illinois alimony ordersWhen circumstances change significantly modifications can be made to spousal support

In Illinois, an alimony order might be reviewed periodically, but what if something major happens to you or your ex-spouse like the loss of a job or an increase in the cost of living? Luckily, if there is a substantial change in circumstances on either party's side you don't have to wait. Both the payer and the payee are entitled to request a change in the order to match their new circumstances.

This is especially true if an ex-spouse receiving support moves in with an intimate partner or gets remarried, which would negate the need for continued support payments.

Call (312) 757-8082 now to discuss your support modification.

Once the facts, such as both partner's employment status, bank balances, and living arrangements are confirmed, the court will hear the case.

It's worth noting that in some cases, even when a spouse's income has changed significantly, it may not be sufficient reason to modify the amounts being paid each month. For instance, in a case where the person paying support pays 10% of their income to the other spouse, a change to the payer's income won't necessarily compel the court to change the percentage owed.

However, whatever the situation is that leads you to modify your payments, hiring an attorney is a surefire way to make sure you know your rights and that all the factors are taken into an account by a judge.

"I began the process of my divorce with a different law firm that someone had recommended to me. This person just so happened to be personal friends with the attorney and hadn't had business experience with them. I felt that my time and situation was not valued and that she really didn't have time for my case. When I would contact the attorney, I would have a list of questions so that I wouldn't get charged multiple times. I searched around my town for a different attorney to take my case, but many refused because of where I was in the process of the divorce. I came across SterlingLawyers.com based on the reviews I read online. The flat-rate pricing really saved me money compared to the expenses with my previous attorney. My attorney Tobias Kinsler instilled confidence and made me feel at ease. I had a positive vibe from the first day that I met him, before I had even decided to hire him as my attorney. Toby was a straight-shooter and didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear. He gave me the facts. I appreciate the hard work and time he dedicated to me undertaking and continuing my case when no one else would. If I ever need an attorney again I will be contacting Toby!"
