The holiday season is officially here. While it's understandable how you can get caught up in everything this entails, it's important not to overlook your legal affairs for too long -- especially if you are considering or are already in the middle of a divorce.
That's because you need to be aware of developments not just in your own case, but in the area of family law as well.
For instance, were you aware that alimony is going to change in a major way here in Illinois?
If not, you can learn how by reading our firm's recently published white paper on this topic entitled "What Illinois' New Spousal Maintenance Law Will Mean For The Average Divorce."
In the paper, we discuss:
- How judges have traditionally not been required to follow any specific rules regarding alimony.
- How starting in January 2015 judges will have to start using specific formulas to determine the amount and duration of alimony.
- How these new formulas will be applied by using easily understandable examples.
We urge you to set aside some time to read -- or perhaps even re-read -- the white paper so that you will be prepared come 2015.
