The Strategy of Requiring Production of Tax Returns in Child Support Situations After Divorce
After any adoption, with respect to minor children, if the parties divorce, the adoptive parent may have the same duties and parental responsibilities in regard to child support and other issues as though the minor child was his or her natural child.
This can be handled by having the spouse responsible for paying child support, send to the spouse receiving child support, a copy of his or her tax returns, including amendments and schedules, by a certain date each year. There should be some provision in the Marital Settlement Agreement and/or Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage that confidential information is to be maintained and not released, subject to an Order from the Court.
Either or both parents may be ordered to pay reasonable and necessary child support, without regard to marital fault or misconduct. If the official Illinois guidelines are not appropriate, the court considers the financial resources and needs of the child, the standard of living the child would have enjoyed if the marriage had endured, the physical, emotional, and educational needs of the child, and the financial resources, needs, and obligations of both the non-custodial and the custodial parent. Support payments may be ordered paid directly to the court.
