In Illinois, child support is the financial contribution that non-custodial parents make to help cover the expenses of raising their children. The amount of child support that is ordered is determined by a set of guidelines established by the state of Illinois. These guidelines take into account factors such as the income of both parents, the number of children, and the amount of time each parent spends with the children. Child support payments are typically made on a monthly basis, and may be enforced by the state if a parent fails to make payments. The court may also enforce the payment of back child support. Child support payments can be modified if there is a significant change in the financial circumstances of either parent.
Contact Zach to review whether your support order should be changed. Did the order consider children from another family? Did a parent get a new job, or lose a job? Have the kids started new hobbies?
Have an order but the other parent isn’t paying? Zach can enforce the order for you, too!
Illinois orders “custody” by allocating “significant decision-making” and “parenting time.” Significant decision making is having authority to make decision about the child’s education, healthcare, extracurricular activities, and religion. Parenting time is the actual, physical time with the child (sometimes called “visitation”). A “joint-custody” order would be shared decision making and equal parenting time. A full custody order would be when one parent has sole decision making and a majority, if not all, parenting time. Orders typically fall between the joint and full orders. When determining child custody, the court's primary concern is the best interest of the child. The court will consider factors such as the child's relationship with each parent, the child's needs, and the parents' ability to cooperate and co-parent.
Worried about whether your current parenting plan, or Allocation Judgement, is safeguarding your child? Has a child started spending more time with a parent than originally planned? Thinking about moving?
Contact Zach right away to make sure that your judgement protects you and your child or if it needs to be updated.
