An Illinois Court may award spousal support or maintenance without regard to fault, in any amount that the Court deems just considering all relevant factors including: the income and property of each party; the needs of each party; the present and future earning capacity of each party; any impairment of the present and future earning capacity of the party due to the fact that that party devoted time to domestic duties; the time necessary to enable the party seeking maintenance to acquire education, training ad employment and whether that party is able to work or is the custodian of a child; the standard of living established during marriage; the duration of the marriage; the age and physical and emotional condition of each party; the tax consequences; contributions of the spouse seeking maintenance to the education, training and career of the other spouse; any valid agreement of the parties; and any other factor that the court finds to be just and equitable.
