DuPage County Child Support Lawyers

Child support payments are a significant financial burden for some parents and an important source of funds for others. Whether you are a payor or a recipient, you should know when child support payments can and will stop. 

Child Support Ends When the Court Order Says It Ends 

Your child support order should specify the end point for paying child support. In most cases, child support will end when a child turns 18, the age of majority.

Child custody and maintenance may also be worked out in a divorce.

Illinois family lawyerThe family law lawyer you select for your case can make a significant impact on your current life and future. Therefore, it is essential that you choose the right one. Since there are a plethora of family law matters such as divorce, child custody, spousal support, and parenting plan modifications, your goal should be to find the lawyer who has experience handling a case similar to yours. To help you find the right lawyer, consider asking any lawyers you interview the following questions:

1. How long have you practiced family law?

Illinois divorce lawyerThe majority of divorcing couples understand the purpose of child support and spousal support. However, only few have heard of and are familiar with unallocated support. Unallocated support can benefit both parties and is an effective way to settle support issues in some divorce cases.

Unallocated Support Defined
