Illinois Child Support
Child Support in Illinois
Child support guidelines are statutory, based on a flat percentage of the income model based on net income. The percentage is based on the number of children in the family.
Either or both parents may be ordered to pay reasonable and necessary child support, without regard to marital fault or misconduct. If the official guidelines are not appropriate, the following factors are considered:
A child's health insurance payment may be included in child support.
The clerk of the court receives child support payments in Illinois.
Additional information may be obtained at 625 Illinois Compiled Statutes Annotated; Chapter 5, Sections 7-703 and 750 Illinois Compiled Statutes Annotated; Chapter 5, Sections 505, 505.2, and 507.
Illinois uses the percentage of income formula to determine child support. Based on the number of children requiring support, the percentage of income formula does not consider many details, and people claim this model is not exact.
