Can becoming disabled cancel spousal support obligations?

Going through a divorce in Illinois will always be a challenging and emotional process. When it is finalized and a divorce decree received, life goes on, and both parties must adjust to their new situations. As long as the court-ordered child and spousal support payments are made by one and received by the other, new, single lives can be built.

Spousal support: Should you rush or stall a divorce until 2019?

The new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will likely have many Illinois couples contemplating divorce wondering whether they should rush to get it done or wait until next year. Under the new law, any spousal support paid in a divorce that is finalized after Dec. 31, 2018, will no longer be taxable for the recipient, and it will no longer offer tax deductions for the payer. Currently, paying spouses may agree to alimony payments easier because of the tax benefits. However, in an acrimonious divorce, the spouse expecting to receive alimony may have a hard time getting the divorce finalized before year-end.
