Elmhurst child support attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses the new changes to Illinois Child Support Laws.
In this article, our Elmhurst child support attorneys explain the new Illinois child support laws that went into effect on July 1, 2017. Prior to 2017, the amount of a non-custodial parent's child support obligation was determined based on a fixed percentage of the obligor's income, which increased based on the number of children. Under the current law, the total amount of child support for which both parents are responsible is calculated using economic tables that take into account the number of children and the standard of living in the geographic area. The portion of that joint obligation that the non-custodial parent must pay as child support is determined based on the income of the obligor relative to that of the obligor.
Elmhurst child support attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains how to modify a child support order.
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.
Elmhurst child support attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses how to calculate your estimated child support obligation under current Illinois law.
In this article, our Elmhurst child support attorneys explain what happens to child support if your ex remarries. This will not likely affect your child support payments,because the child support payment is intended to support your child, not the ex-spouse. Even if they are now living a life of luxury, thanks to a new spouse, the new spouse has no legal obligation to your child. The only exception to this is if the child is adopted by the new spouse. If this occurs, the only payments that you would be obligated to pay are the arrears that have already become due and owing. Courts will not take the new spouse's income into account when calculating child support obligations.
