How Child Support Payments are Determined

Child Support Lawyers in Oak Lawn, ILChild support payment amounts vary depending on several different factors; however, the primary component is the noncustodial parent’s net income. Other contributing elements may include day care expenses, schooling, the custodial parent’s net income, medical insurance, special needs, living arrangements, etc.

It is important to understand that the court will always try to take into account what is best for the child. Having an experienced lawyer on hand to help determine a fair and appropriate payment amount is exceedingly beneficial.

How Child Support Payments are Enforced

It is never a good idea to go against the decision of a court. This may be considered contempt of court action, which may result in various sanctions, including fines and/or incarceration. If you are the custodial parent, and the noncustodial parent fails to make their payments, then we will assist you with the legal steps necessary to find an appropriate solution.

If you are the noncustodial parent, and you are having difficulty meeting your payment obligations, we may help you modify your payment amounts.

How Support Payment Amounts can Change

When unforeseen life events occur, payment amounts may need to be adjusted. In order to modify them, you essentially must be able to prove that a substantial change in circumstances has occurred (such as a change in your financial status or medical needs).

Our child support attorneys will prepare the documentation required to petition these changes, and represent you as needed.
