One of the key issues that generally needs to be hammered out during divorce is the amount of alimony or spousal support to be paid out, if any. Our McHenry divorce attorneys can help you argue for a legitimate claim to collect alimony. On the other hand, an experienced attorney can also help defend against baseless claims for support.
