Child Support Issues in DuPage County

Child support is one of the most commonly handled issues in family law. It is typically a part of divorce proceedings and legal separations or arranged between two unmarried parents. This issue goes hand-in-hand with child custody and visitation. Technically, the right to child support belongs to the child, but payments are generally made from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent.

Illinois Child Support Guidelines

In the state of Illinois, child support is calculated based on a percentage of a parent’s income. The amount of child support increases along with the number of children who require support. These guidelines are informed by the specific circumstances of the case. A judge or mediator usually considers the following when making a child support determination:

  • The resources of the custodial parent
  • The resources of the non-custodial parent
  • The lifestyle the child is accustomed to
  • The needs of the child including educational and medical expenses among others

At the Abear Law Offices, we can provide a more comprehensive explanation of how child support is determined and what child support award is appropriate in your case. Attorney Anthony Abear has experience handling child support issues in divorce cases, paternity cases and post decree modifications. Adjustments to child support are routinely required as the circumstances of one or both parents change over time. At our firm, we maintain long-term relationships with our clients to facilitate post decree modifications as necessary.
