Financial Issues Involving Family Law in Mount Greenwood

There are numerous financial issues involving family law that a Mount Greenwood family law attorney can help with. In many high net worth divorces, for example, property division becomes extremely complex, requiring a valuation expert for certain assets. In these cases, spousal maintenance can also become complicated. While Illinois law now has a formula for courts to use when determining the amount and duration of spousal maintenance, it only applies if the couple earns a combined gross income of less than $250,000. In high asset divorces, the court will not use the guidelines but instead will make a decision about maintenance specific to the couple.

Child support laws have also changed recently in Illinois. The state has shifted to an “income shares” model, meaning that both parents are expected to contribute to the financial support obligation for their children.
