Support is all about your kids. Just like you, it is our goal to make sure they are taken care off. The Illinois legislature has provide rules and guidelines to ensure that children do not suffer in a divorce and receive sufficient support. At Casey Nelson LLP, we have extensive experience and expertise navigating the statutes to the ultimate benefit of our clients.
Parents may be ordered to pay child support. Illinois law provides guidelines as to the amount of support owed to a child. The court shall determine the minimum amount of support by using the following guidelines:
|Number of Children||Percentage of Supporting Party’s Net Income|
|6 or more||50%|
Section 5/505 of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act provides that the above guideline shall be applied in each case unless the court makes a finding that a deviation is warranted.
Casey Nelson LLP's divorce attorneys work closely with our clients both to educate them on Illinois child support requirements and to advocate for an accurate accounting of each parent's income.
