The New Illinois Child Support Law in July 2017

As of July 2017, Illinois courts will no longer determine child support payments using only a fixed percentage of the supporting parent's income. Instead, the court will determine the amount of money required for a child to maintain the standard of living they would have enjoyed had the marriage remained intact. The court will then determine each parent's share of this amount based on their amount of parenting time and parental responsibilities, as well as each parent's net income. The court may also require parents to contribute to costs for childcare, extracurricular activities, and healthcare.

Child support payments stop when a child reaches 18 years old, or, if the child becomes emancipated, at the age of emancipation. A non-custodial parent may be required to continue child support payments after the child has reached the age of 18 if the child attends college or remains dependent due to an illness or disability.

The family law attorneys at Anderson & Associates can help you apply the new Illinois child support laws to your financial situation to develop fair and enforceable child support agreements for your family. For experienced legal representation that will fight for your child's best interest in the child support process, call 847-995-9999 or email our law offices to schedule an initial consultation.
