Amending Your Last Will and Testament and Trust After Divorce
A Last Will and Testament, that contains provisions for a former spouse, is not revoked by entry of a Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage. The terms and conditions of any valid Last Will and Testament remain in full force and effect, expect that there is an exception in regard to those terms and conditions that provided for property distribution to a former spouse. In that situation, if a Last Will and Testament was executed prior to a Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage being entered, the Last Will and Testament is treated as if the former spouse predeceased the testator.
Either or both parents may be ordered to pay reasonable and necessary child support, without regard to marital fault or misconduct. If the official Illinois guidelines are not appropriate, the court considers the financial resources and needs of the child, the standard of living the child would have enjoyed if the marriage had endured, the physical, emotional, and educational needs of the child, and the financial resources, needs, and obligations of both the non-custodial and the custodial parent. Support payments may be ordered paid directly to the court.
