Naperville child support attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains the new changes to Illinois child support laws in 2017.
Our Naperville child support attorneys explain recent laws that impact child support payments. Under the new "income shares" model of child support, a parent's child support obligation is determined baased on his or her "net income" relative to the net income of the other parent. In "shared parenting" situations, in which each parent has custody of the child for at least 146 overnights per year, the amount of time that each parent spends with the child is also a factor in determining the child support obligation.
In this Learn About Law podcast & videoblog, attorney Kevin O'Flaherty of O'Flaherty Law discusses both the process for modifying child support obligations in Illinois and what constitutes a "substantial change in circumstances" that would allow child support to be modified. For some foundational information, check out our articles: Illinois Child Support Law Explained and Changes to Illinois Child Support Law for 2017.
Our Naperville child support lawyers explain modifications to child support judgments in Illinois. In order to modify a child support obligation in Illinois, the party seeking to modify the obligation must demonstrate a “substantial change in circumstances." To move forward with this legal process you must file a petition to modify child support. However, vested child support obligations, meaning payments that are already past due, may not modified without agreement from the other party.
Naperville child support attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses how child support is calculated when the parties have varying income, such as overtime or bonuses.
Our Naperville child support lawyers explain what happens when your ex remarries. If your ex remarries, it is likely that your child support payments will not be affected. The payments are intended to support your child not the ex-spouse. Even if their new spouse is providing a life of luxury for them, the new spouse has no obligation to your child. The only exception is if the child is adopted by the new spouse, in which case the only payments that would need to be made are the arrears. Judges will not take the new spouse's income into account when calculating child support.
