Child Support

Wheaton, Illinois Child Support Lawyers

Carol Stream Child Support Attorney

Attorneys for Child Support Issues Serving DuPage County

The child support lawyers at our firm understand the child support laws of Illinois. A new child support law has gone into effect as of July 2017, and under this law, the amount of child support will no longer be based only on a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s income. The new law introduces a shared income model which accounts for both parents’ parenting time and income to determine the amount of child support owed.

It is best to consult with a knowledgeable Illinois child support lawyer to discuss child support. Whether you think you might be required to make child support payments, concerned about temporary child support, or are hoping to receive support payments, contact us at Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC at 630-665-7300.

Unallocated Support

Our attorneys are skilled at using one variation of support that may have advantages to both parties. This is called “unallocated support or maintenance,” and it requires the higher income party pay “unallocated maintenance” rather than child support and spousal maintenance. Because of the tax savings to the higher income spouse, there may be additional funds available for payments to the lower income spouse.

Special Accounting Skills

In some cases, forensic accountants are necessary to identify sources of income for the purposes of calculating support payments. This is particularly true when one spouse is a sole proprietor or otherwise self-employed and does not receive a W-2 form from an employer. One of our attorneys, George Frederick, has a degree in accounting and performs income-related investigative work for our law firm.

Child Support Modification

Calculating child support payments is only the first step. Petitioning for modification of a child support order is often necessary when parental circumstances change. For example, one party may obtain a higher-paying job, lose their job , become permanently disabled, or have another child. There are many reasons why child support orders may need modification. Our attorneys structure petitions for modification of a child support order to obtain the best possible outcome for our clients.
