Depending upon the duration and circumstances of the marriage, courts may award spousal maintenance (formerly known as alimony) in a divorce. There are several types of maintenance in Illinois, each tailored to specific circumstances. Additionally, some divorce cases involving maintenance may be subject to a statutory formula regarding the amount and duration of a spousal maintenance award.
