Illinois Alimony Laws

Alimony (also known as spousal maintenance) is not awarded to punish one party for wrongful conduct or marital fault. Rather, the goal of alimony is to provide one spouse with the financial support necessary to maintain a similar standard of living or to provide the opportunity for a spouse to obtain employment after a significant period out of the workforce. Although alimony may be ordered either temporarily or permanently, it is uncommon for Illinois family courts to order permanent or long-term spousal support.

In Illinois, there is a formula that determines the amount and duration of alimony payments. However, there is not a straightforward way to determine whether or not to award alimony to one party.

When determining whether to award alimony, the court will evaluate:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Each spouse’s needs
  • Each spouse’s ability to pay

In certain cases, alimony may be offset by allocation of property in a property settlement agreement.
