Modification Of Maintenance In Illinois
At Manassa, Stassen & Vaclavek, P.C. , we understand that life is never static. Our clients' lives and their needs are constantly evolving. Although the terms of a divorce settlement or decree may have been appropriate in the beginning, many divorced individuals find that changing financial demands and abilities now require modifications to child support and spousal maintenance (also called spousal support or alimony) orders.
With decades of experience, an in-depth understanding of Illinois family law and a reputation for high-end legal service, our attorneys for modification of maintenance are available to review your existing spousal maintenance order and advise you about your options for requesting a modification.
Modifications Require A Substantial Change Of Circumstance
For an individual to qualify for a spousal support or maintenance modification, he or she (or his or her ex-spouse) must have undergone a significant change of financial circumstances. Examples may include:
• Changes to employment such as job loss or gaining a new job
• Changes to health such as a serious illness or disability
• Other changes to income or financial obligations
• Entering a supportive relationship such as a new marriage or moving in with a boyfriend or girlfriend
