As our Downers Grove family law attorneys explained in our article Changes to Illinois Child Support Laws for 2017, effective July 1, 2017, Illinois reformed its child support laws. Under the former law, the amount that an obligor parent was required to pay in child support was based simply on the obligor’s income and the number of children involved. In our new article detailing the new changes under the law, the new “income shares” model for calculating Illinois child support, the total amount of child support for which the parents are jointly responsible is calculated based on the combined net income of both parents.
In this article, our Downers Grove child support lawyers further explain how to modify child support obligations in Illinois. We discuss when child support can be modified, whether you can modify your child support obligation based on the changes to child support laws that have taken effect as of July 1, 2017. The process for modifying child support in Illinois, the distinction between vested child support obligations and future obligations, whether child support can be modified during an appeal, and what constitutes a "substantial change in circumstances" that would allow for modification of child support have been updated.
