Section 504 of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act - Award of Maintenance

Section 504 of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act prescribes the criteria for the award of maintenance. Maintenance, formerly known as alimony is designed to rehabilitate the recipient and to provide support so that the recipient may obtain necessary training or education which in theory will enable the recipient to support himself or herself in the future.

The Illinois Domestic Violence Act

The Illinois Domestic Violence Act was signed into law in 1983. Commonly referred to as the IDVA, it was designed and enacted to prevent physical abuse, threats of violence or force, harassment, and various forms of interference with personal liberties. One must share a relationship with the perpetrator of domestic abuse, such as marriage, or having a child in common, or living in the same household or having a current or former dating relationship to qualify for relief under the IDVA.
