Illinois Spousal Support Attorneys
At Jill M. Metz & Associates, we understand that spousal maintenance, formerly called alimony, disputes are often highly contentious. Rather than unnecessarily inflaming potentially contentious matters, we seek to resolve disputes as amicably as possible, while fully protecting our clients' rights and interests.
If you are involved in a divorce for a marriage or civil union that involves a maintenance claim, contact Jill M. Metz & Associates today. We will carefully advise you of your rights, and we work diligently to provide the effective and highly personalized representation you deserve.
Civil Union Maintenance Claims
Many lesbian and gay individuals do not understand that their significant other may seek maintenance in a civil union divorce proceeding. This issue requires same-sex couples who are in a civil union in Illinois or another state or country and have now broken up, but not formally dissolved their civil union, to seek a legal dissolution of their relationship as soon as possible. Illinois Civil Union laws give same-sex couples who have entered into a civil union the same rights and responsibilities of married couples. Accordingly, civil union spouses may request or be ordered to pay maintenance for a limited duration or for an extended duration.
Whether you are seeking maintenance or opposing a maintenance claim, it is critical that you retain an experienced family law attorney. We encourage you to contact Jill M. Metz & Associates. For more than 35 years, our lawyers have been providing professional legal services in a warm and friendly environment. We pride ourselves on providing effective legal services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals and couples.
