Determining and enforcing child support in Illinois

Most people in Illinois would agree that raising children is expensive. For many, doing so on a single salary is often difficult, if not impossible. As such, discussions surrounding child support following the end of a romantic relationship or in paternity cases can often become contested.

Unfortunately, those who need child support or those who are expected to provide it may not be fully aware of the obligations under Illinois law, which uses an "income shares model." Under this model, the court considers the income of each parent as well as parenting time. A formula helps determine the appropriate amount of child support. Various factors, including the amount of time spent with the child over a certain period of time, gross income of each parent, physical or emotional needs, other income -- including public benefits -- that a parent might receive and existing tax burdens, are included in these considerations.

Parents in Illinois are often dedicated to ensuring that their children receive the appropriate amount of financial support. As such, they often turn to the law firm of Lois Kulinsky & Associates, Ltd. for help. With over 50 years of combined experience, our attorneys can help parents ensure that the right amount of support is determined.

Often, issues arise after an original child support agreement is made. For many parents in Illinois, their financial situation may change, prompting them to seek a revision with the assistance of our experienced attorneys. Some parents may also need assistance enforcing an existing agreement. Often, an initial consultation with our firm can be the first step toward a satisfactory resolution.
