In this Learn About Law podcast & videoblog, Will County family law attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses upcoming changes to Illinois Child Support Laws in 2017.
In this article, our Will County child support attorneys explain the changes to Illinois child support law that went into effect on July 1, 2017.
The changes to Illinois child support law have the intent of modernizing the law to match the modern parenting situation. Under the new "income shares" model of child support, courts use economic tables to calculate a certain base amount of child support for which the parents will be jointly responsible based on their combined incomes. Responsibility for this base amount is then allocated among the parents based on relative income. In a shared parenting situation, the amount of time that each parent is responsible for the child is also taken into consideration.
Will County child support attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains how to modify child support orders in Will County, Illinois.
In this article, our Will County child support lawyers explain how to modify child support orders. The party seeking to modify a child support order must file a motion to modify child support. After the motion is filed, a hearing will be held at which the person seeking the modification must demonstrate a substantial change in circumstances. Some situations in which child support orders may be modified include a change in the financial situation of either party or a change in the needs of the child.
Will County child support attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses how child support works for college expenses.
In this article our Will County child support lawyers explain child support and college expenses. Whenever two parents are not married, child support will be required until the child reaches the age of 18 or graduates from highschool, whichever comes first. However, child support may be required after these events for education after highschool. Unlike child support for a minor, courts will not automatically grant child support for college expenses. The burden is on the party seeking child support to prove that support for an adult child is appropriate.
