Kendall County Divorce Spousal Support Lawyers

Kendall County Spousal Support Lawyers

Divorce is a difficult process. If you encounter a law firm or attorney that tries to convince you otherwise, you are being misled. During the course of any divorce, there are many issues to resolve and considerations that must be made, and addressing them all can be extremely complicated. At Robertson Legal Group, LLC, we work to make the dissolution of marriage process easier for our clients whenever possible. With our advocacy skills and knowledge of the law, we can assist you in obtaining the divorce settlement you need to move on to the next chapter of your life.

Considerations for Divorce in Yorkville Illinois

For most couples, divorce is more than the end of a romantic relationship. It is also the means through which the parties must disentangle themselves from the lives they once shared. Doing so requires careful attention to a number of concerns including:

  • Identification and division of marital property;
  • Child custody (allocation of parental responsibilities) and visitation (parenting time);
  • Child support considerations; and
  • Spousal support.

The divorce attorneys at our firm have more than 30 years of combined experience helping clients with their most challenging cases. We understand the value of negotiation and compromise in divorce proceedings and will help you and your spouse craft a settlement agreement that meets your needs and protects your rights. If necessary, however, we are also prepared to advocate on your behalf in court.

Spousal Maintenance Lawyers in Kendall County

In many marriages, one spouse is the primary wage-earner, making substantially more money than the other. When such a marriage comes to an end, the lower-earning spouse could face serious difficulties in supporting him- or herself in the years to come. According to Illinois law, maintenance—also known as spousal support or alimony—may be awarded to help alleviate some of the challenges created by a divorce.

The attorneys at Robertson Legal Group, LLC understand that spousal support is not guaranteed in any situation. We work closely with our clients to demonstrate their need for support in accordance with the law. In making a decision regarding spousal support, the court must take into account a number of circumstantial factors including:

  • Each spouse’s income, resources, and needs;
  • The length of the marriage and the lifestyle each spouse enjoyed;
  • Whether one spouse sacrificed career advancement to help the other’s career;
  • How long the financially disadvantaged spouse would need to become self-sufficient, or if self-sufficiency is even possible;
  • How the marital property is being divided; and
  • The age, health, and employability of each spouse.

Whether you are in need of spousal support following your divorce or are being asked to support your soon-to-be ex-spouse, we will provide the guidance you need. With our knowledge of the law, we can help ensure that your rights are fully protected throughout the process.
