New 2017 Child Support Law: How Much Child Support Will I Have to Pay In Illinois?

DuPage County Divorce Attorneys Clear Up Questions Regarding New Child Support Laws

Changes are coming later in July 2017 regarding child support laws in Illinois. This can potentially modify an existing order or directly affect one you may be working on currently if you are in the middle of a divorce. Allow our team at Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC to elaborate on what these new child support changes can mean for you.

Illinois family laws are often changing, and it can be difficult to keep up with everything that is happening. That is where our team can help. We will break down these new guidelines regarding child support payments to assist you with your case. The current laws read that the percentage of support is calculated by how many children you have. Starting in July 2017, this system will no longer be the rule. Illinois will be removing the existing laws in exchange for a percentage guideline with the income share model.

This model has been enforced in a large amount of the states across America. This model takes into consideration the income of both parents. This is not necessarily bad news for certain situations. In some circumstances, this law could, in fact, conclude that your child support obligation payment can be reduced. If you believe you are entitled to a reduction or are curious why your spouse's obligation is changing, contact an attorney right away.
