Child Support

Wheaton, Illinois Child Support Lawyers

Glen Ellyn Child Support Attorney

Child Support Attorneys Serving DuPage, Kendall, and Will Counties

The child support lawyers at our firm understand the child support laws of Illinois. In 2017, these laws changed significantly. In contrast to the way Illinois courts calculated child support before July of 2017, in which the non-custodial parent was obligated to pay a percentage of their income based on the number of children, the new laws will consider more variables. The courts will now take the amount of both parents’ parenting time and responsibility into account, as well as each parent’s income.

Our knowledgeable Illinois Child Support lawyers understand the new child support law, but more importantly, we know how to make the child support laws work for our clients. Contact us at Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC.

Realizing Savings Through Unallocated Support

One child support variation that may have advantages for both parties is called “unallocated support or maintenance,” and it requires the party who earns a higher income to pay “unallocated maintenance” instead of spousal maintenance and child support. The attorneys at Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC are skilled at using this variation of child support which, due to the tax savings it can bring for the higher income spouse, may provide for additional funds for child support and spousal maintenance payments to the lower income spouse.

Forensic Accounting Skills

When one of the parties in a divorce is the sole proprietor of a business or is otherwise self-employed, forensic accounting may be necessary to identify sources of income for the purposes of calculating child support payments. Attorney George Frederick is a degreed accountant, who regularly performs investigative work related to income, ensuring that our clients receive the child support payments that they deserve.

Modification of Child Support

Calculating the initial child support payments is often only the first step in a longer process. When parents’ circumstances change, it is often necessary to petition for modification of a child support order. There are many reasons why child support orders may need modification, including one party receiving an increase in pay, one party becoming permanently disables, or either party having another child. Our attorneys work to structure any child support order petitions for modification and reach the best possible outcome for our clients.
