Child Support Legal Services in DuPage County

Usually when parents file for divorce or legal separation, one of the most contested issues between them is child support. Since child support payments determine how well a child will be provided for, both the custodial and noncustodial parent need to know how child support payments will be calculated in Illinois.

While child support payments from a non-custodial parent to a custodial parent in Illinois used to be calculated using a percentage of the non-custodial parent's income, this is no longer the case. Following a modification to Illinois law that went into effect in July of 2017, child support payments are now determined based on both parents' combined income and each parent's percentage share of that combined income, as well as each parent's amount of parental responsibility and parenting time with their children. Parents may also be required to contribute to the costs of expenses related to the child's needs, such as medical, dental, and daycare.

At Stock, Carlson, Oldfield and McGrath LLC, our attorneys understand there are a variety of complex disputes that occur in a divorce, especially where children are concerned. Not only are there issues involving child support, but disputes over custody and visitation rights and possible questions about paternity, may also add to the frustration regarding child support.
