Arlington Heights Modifying Spousal Support and Alimony Attorneys

Alimony, also referred to in Illinois as spousal support or maintenance, is an issue that divorcing parties deal with long after the relationship is over. Alimony payments can continue for years, so parties do not get the benefit of a truly clean break from each other. The longer alimony is paid, the greater the likelihood that the payment amount will need to be changed at some point to account for changes in either party's life.

At the Law Offices of Donald J. Cosley, in Rolling Meadows, we represent clients on both sides of the spousal support issue — those paying as well as those receiving. If you are paying, we can help you seek modification or termination of alimony in certain circumstances. If you receive alimony and your former spouse is trying to lower the amount, we will protect your interests as well. We have been handling these issues for clients in Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates and the surrounding areas for nearly 20 years.

Grounds for Modifying Spousal Support in Illinois

Either party may petition the court to modify or end the alimony obligation when there is a substantial change in circumstances. Some examples of reasons a court would modify spousal support and alimony include:

  • Substantial involuntary decrease in either party's income
  • Substantial increase in either party's income
  • Failure of a business
  • Retirement
  • The receiving spouse starts living with someone else (cohabitation)
  • The receiving spouse gets remarried
  • Major health problem that impairs earning ability
  • Increases in the cost of living

If you need to seek or oppose a modification of spousal support, attorney Donald J. Cosley and our entire legal team is ready to meet with you and discuss your options.
