When The Stakes Are High In Divorce, Count On Us
Divorce is never easy, but when the couple divorcing is wealthy, the divorce is considered high-asset and the matters become even more complicated. Moreover, it is even more important to be sure that your rights in the laws regarding separate and marital property are protected.
The attorneys at the law firm of Robert A. Chapski, Ltd., have a long history of helping individuals with high net worth divorce and as well as divorce when a family-owned business is involved. Our lawyers are highly experienced in business valuation, an important piece of the division of assets and property.
How Is Spousal Support Determined?
Once known as alimony, spousal support — or maintenance as it is sometimes called — is the court-ordered or agreed upon financial support of one former spouse by the other. This is separate from any child support ordered. Many factors determine whether an individual qualifies for spousal maintenance. In Illinois, the courts consider elements such as:
- Income of each individual
- Needs of each party
- Earning capacities
- Length of the marriage
- Sources of income
- Age and skills of each party
