Recent Changes to DuPage County Child Support Laws

In this article, our DuPage County child support lawyers take a closer look at recent changes to Illinois child support laws.

Illinois changed how child support is calculated by converting to the "income shares model" to calculate child support. With this model, the amount of base child support will now be calculated based on economic tables that take into account both parents' income, the cost of living and the number of children involved. After this amount is calculated both parents will be responsible for a proportional amount based on the amount they make compared to one another.

In 'shared parenting' arrangements, which occur when both parents have cared for the child for at least 146 nights a year, the amount of time each parent spends with the child is factored into the amount of child support for which each parent is responsible. The base child support for which the couple is collectively responsible is increased in shared parenting situations as well.

2016 Changes to DuPage County Family Law

With this article, our DuPage County child support lawyers discuss the changes to Illinois family that recently occurred in 2016. Among those changes is how child custody is handled in court. Rather than using terms such as "custodial parent" and a "non-custodial parent," the courts in Illinois now refer to this as the "allocation of parenting time and responsibility." Also, specific grounds for divorce, such as bigamy and drug abuse drug abuse have also been removed. As of 2016, "irreconcilable differences" is the only grounds for divorce in Illinois. The amount of time required time of legal separation due to irreconcilable differences has now been reduced from 2 years to 6 months. This period can also now be waived if cagreed by both parties. Lastly, relocation rules have been modified to focus more on the distance of relocation while focusing less on crossing state lines.
