In this article, our Downers Grove child support attorneys explain the major revisions to the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act and the significance to child support issues.  These include reclassifying terminology in regards to "parenting time" and "decision making authority.  Courts take into consideration different factors to determine parenting schedules for both parents in determining custody Some of these factors include:​

  • How far apart do the parents live from one another?
  • What school will the children be attending?
  • How long have they attended this school?
  • What is each parent’s respective work schedule?
  • Are the parties likely to require daycare or after school care for the children?
  • What extracurricular activities are the children involved in?
