Recent Changes to Illinois Child Support Law

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.

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
