Child Support in Illinois

Starting July 1, 2017, Illinois law respecting child support will change.

The new child support law is considered an "income sharing" model. In other words, the net incomes of both parents will generally be used to calculate monthly child support paid by one parent to the other parent. After the net incomes of both parents are calculated, the incomes are combined and applied to the Schedule of Basic Child Support Obligation to determine the overall finanial obligation of the parents. Then, divide each parent's net income by the total combined net income of the parents to determine (i) the % of each parent's net income to the total combined net income, and (ii) the % each parent is responsible for paying.
