Watch for big CHILD SUPPORT CHANGES coming to Illinois in 2017. Will they affect you or someone you love?
Are you paying too much? Receiving too little? Child support changes may help YOU.
If you have been paying too much child support, or receiving too little, the time to take action is NOW! Every day you delay may be costing you MONEY! Courts are usually not willing to turn back the clock and change your past child support unless you file a pleading and ask for child support changes, so ACT NOW!
Child support changes in the law.
The Illinois General Assembly has passed a law changing the way courts figure child support. While the new changes are complex, basically what will happen in cases decided after July 1 is a “means test” for the parent receiving child support. That is, the incomes of the two parents will first be compared. Then, using tables to be created by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, the court will determine child support based on the relative incomes of the parties.
Sound complicated? These new laws enacting child support changes will probably seem confusing to the average parent. To add to the confusion, the rules change if, for example, one parent has parenting time (what used to be called “custody”) for at least 146 days out of the year.
Once again, big child support changes are coming to Illinois in July. If you have been paying too much child support, or receiving too little, the time to take action is NOW! Every day you delay may be costing you MONEY!
