There is no doubt about it: Divorce can have massive financial implications. For many, getting divorced represents a considerable financial hardship. In Illinois, divorced parents with the majority of the parenting time are typically entitled to child support. Some divorced spouses are also entitled to spousal maintenance or, as it is called in other states, alimony. You may be wondering, “Can a spouse receive both spousal maintenance and child support?”

If you are like most people getting divorced, you do not want to continue to share a home with your soon-to-be-ex. Some divorcing spouses are able to stay in the same house while the divorce is ongoing, but many couples find this impossible. If your ex has become violent in the past or you fear that he or she will become violent, staying in the marital home together may be outright dangerous. Fortunately, Illinois law offers two legal avenues through which you may be able to get exclusive possession of the marital home in a divorce.
