In Illinois, can a Spouse Give Up His or Her Right to Alimony in a Premarital Agreement?

Yes, Illinois law allows spouses to include modification or elimination of spousal support in their prenuptial agreement. However, if the couple decided to limit or eliminate alimony in their prenuptial agreement, a Court could override that agreement if, due to unforeseen circumstances, the lack of alimony creates undue hardship for one of the parties.
