Updates to the Illinois Child Support Law in 2017

The function of child support is to make sure a child’s basic needs are met and that the child’s standard of living does not substantially decline following a divorce. With recent changes to Illinois’ child support law, which went into effect in July 2017, both parents’ incomes are taken into consideration when determining the amount of child support payments, as well as the amount of each parent’s parenting time and responsibility. The goal of this law is to provide for the child’s best interest.

When one or both parents earn a high income, achieving those goals is not difficult. Depending on the specific facts of the case, a judge will use the law’s guidelines to determine what amount of child support is sufficient to provide for the child. Additionally, a high-earning non-custodial parent may be ordered to pay for additional expenses such as daycare, private school, and medical bills not covered by insurance.

Cases involving high-income parents are decided on a case-by-case basis, and the court will consider the totality of the situation and the best interests of the child.
