Kane County chiled support attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains some of the recent changes to Illinois child support law.
In this article, our Kane County child support lawyers explain the current state of Illinois child support law. Prior to 2017, the amount of child support required to be paid by an obligor parent was a fixed percentage of the obligor's income that varied based on the number of children involved. According to the "income shares" model of child support adopted by Illinois law in July of 2017, the amount of child support the obligor parent is required to pay is based on the obligor's income relative to that of the obligee.
Kane County child support lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains how child support is calculated when one of the parties has varying income.
In this article, our Kane County child support attorneys explain how varying income impacts child support obligations. The amount of a non-custodial parent's child support obligation is based on the income of each party. This is straightforward when both parties have consistent income like a salary, but the calculation becomes more challenging when one or both of the parties has varying income such as overtime or bonuses. In these cases, courts will either use a historical average or a base child support amount with monthly supplements. In addition, the parties will often conduct periodic "true ups" to ensure the amount actually paid in child support reflects the reality of the parties' income.
Kane County child support lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains child support for college expenses.
In this artilce, our Kane County child support attorneys explain how child support works after the child has reached the age of majority. Child support is mandatory in Illinois until the child reaches the age of 18 or graduates from highschool. However, courts have discretion to grant child support after this time if the party seeking child support can demonstrate that it is appropriate for things like college expenses.
