Recent Changes to Illinois Child Support Law

Our Downers Grove child support attorneys explain the differences in how child support is determined in 2020. Once an appropriate amount for child support is set by the court, each parent’s portion of the obligation must be designated. Typically, this is determined by the parents’ relative incomes. The larger the difference in income between the obligor and obligee, the more the obligor is likely to pay in child support. The change from a fixed-rate model to an income shares model affects each case differently. Spouses with similar incomes will likely receive less in child support under the new law.​


In this video, Downers Grove child support lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty discusses recent changes to Illinois child support laws that came into effect in 2020.

How to Modify Child Support in Downers Grove

In this article, our Elmhurst child support lawyers explain how child support judgments may be modified. In order to modify a final judgment on child support, the party seeking to modify the order must show proof of "substantial change in circumstances." We explain what types of life changes for each parent and the child constitute a "substantial change of circumstances" as well as the process for obtaining a child support modification order from the domestic relations court.

For this episode of Learn About Law, Downers Grove child support attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains how to modify your child support order.

Allocation of Parenting Time and Responsibility Explained

In this article, our Downers Grove child support attorneys explain the major revisions to the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) and the significance to child support issues.  These revisions include changing definitions of "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?

“Decision making authority” is much simpler to ascertain, it is based on four (4) major aspects of the child’s life that the parents must come to some agreement on.

  • Extracurricular activities;
  • Religion;
  • Education; 
  • and Medical care
