Child support is a person's legal obligation to provide financial support to his/her minor child or children. The state of Illinois has established guidelines for child support. These guidelines range from 20% of the non-custodial parent's net income for one child up to 50% for five or more children.
However, guidelines are only guidelines. Guidelines do not necessarily apply to high income individuals. Our experienced attorneys will assist you to determine the appropriate child support payments based on each parent's economic situation.
In addition to child support and since July 2012, the Illinois Courts now have authority to order parents to financially contribute to their children's extracurricular activities, music lessons, summer camp, sports activities, organizational activities (i.e. boy scouts, girl scouts), educational expenses such as tuition, books, supplies, bus and transportation costs and related costs, tutoring and the like.
Section 510 of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act requires that the moving party have a substantial change in their financial circumstances, or that there be a substantial change in the financial circumstances of the other parents, or of the child. Child support and these related above expenses can always be modified as long as there is a substantial change in circumstances. Whether you are seeking to establish child support, obtain contributions to extracurricular activity costs or educational costs, or modify a prior child support order, our attorneys have your family's best interests at heart and strive to provide the highest-quality representation of your interests, consistent with Illinois guidelines.
