Our DuPage county alimony attorneys explain how spousal maintenance payments impact child support obligations in the following companion video.
Child support in Illinois is based on each parent’s relative net income. The greater your net income relative to the other parent the greater your child support obligation will be if you are the payor and the less you will receive if you are the recipient. If you are the recipient of child support, any maintenance payments you receive from anyone will raise your net income and reduce the amount of child support you receive. If you are the party making child support payments, only maintenance payments to the same person who is receiving the child support will reduce your net income and therefore the amount of child support you are obligated to pay.
