Bloomingdale Child Support Lawyers
Child Support Attorneys Serving Carol Stream, Hanover Park and Wheaton
Issues of child support are often among the most contentious issues disputed in family law. In many cases, one party will feel as though either too much or too little financial support for the child has been ordered. At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, our family law attorneys are experienced in negotiating child support from both sides of a case in divorces, issues of paternity and guardianship situations. We analyze each case individually to determine what level of child support is appropriate, and we work closely with our clients to maximize their benefits.
Determining Child Support Obligations in Illinois
Illinois statutes offer guidelines for calculating the child support obligation of a parent based primarily on net income. These guidelines, however, are influenced by numerous other factors including but not limited to:
- Child custody issues;
- Number of children;
- Child care costs;
- Medical and educational expenses;
- Special needs of the child; and
- Financial hardship of the parties.
Modifications to Child Support Payments
If the financial circumstances of one or both parents changes after child support has already been determined, the orders can be modified. Post decree modifications typically require a substantial change in circumstances, however. For example, if the paying parent loses his/her job, that parent may be able to have child support payments reduced. Our team of family lawyers is experienced in working with child support modifications for both paying parents and child support recipients.
