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.

"Because all you do is family law. My ex wife has taken me to court several times. She lost each time because I don't think she had competent representation. I'm tired of her pushing me around making me feel like some low life dad. I'm a pretty hard sell and very cautious with my money (because I don't have much of it). I asked around social media, father advocacy groups, and reviews online. SterlingLawyers.com was the choice."
