Child Support

Child support is the payment made from one parent to another for the purpose of caring for a child. In 2017, Illinois joined 40 other states and territories that use the income shares model to calculate child support. Using this model, parents contribute based on their income and the amount of “nights” spent by each parent with the child.

While this sounds fairly simple, issues of child support can be contentious and complicated. That’s why it’s important to think ahead and hire the services of a qualified child support attorney to create, maintain, and enforce child support agreements. The child support attorneys at Family Law Solutions can help you through issues such as:

  • Determining the amount of child support paid
  • Pursuing child support when one parent is unemployed or underemployed
  • Maintaining, modifying, and enforcing child support agreements, including taking action if one parent is avoiding payments
  • Coming to equitable solutions regarding child support through mediation or litigation
  • Making decisions based on the financial situations of both parents

Whether you’re just starting to think about child support or you need to modify your longstanding agreement, Family Law Solutions is here to help. We can provide sound counsel and advice based on your unique situation and always keep your children’s best interest at the heart of our services.
