Northern Illinois Child Support Attorney
Child support is a major issue upon divorce. The children’s needs and each parent’s financial obligation to the children must be established. You need a child support lawyer who will advise you of your rights and do everything possible to protect them.
Illini Legal Services, in Aurora, Oswego, West and Chicago represent individuals throughout Northern Illinois. We have a comprehensive understanding of child support law specific to Illinois. A child support attorney with years of experience will guide you through the process of establishing child support payments that provide your children the greatest benefit considering each parent’s financial situation.
In Illinois, child support calculations are based on the financial needs of the child and the financial resources of the residential and non-residential parent. The parents are responsible for dividing the cost of child rearing in an effort to supply the child with a similar standard of living as enjoyed while the parents were married. The court may decide to deviate from statutory child support guidelines in special circumstances.
In addition to providing support for a child’s basic necessities, child support orders may include provisions for day care, college tuition, health insurance co-pays, and extra curricular activities, among many others. To find out more about your responsibilities as a residential or non-residential parent, contact us.
Child Support Enforcements and Modifications
If the non-residential parent fails to comply with the terms of a support order, the residential parent may wish to file an enforcement action to recover delinquent child support payments. We will assert your and your child’s support rights by filing collection petitions and contempt executions. In addition, we help non-custodial parents file for post -decree modification when a significant change in financial circumstances prevents the timely payment of child support. Call (630) 405-5027 to discuss your specific case.
