Addressing Your Child Support Concerns
Starting July 1, 2017, the law will change dramatically. Essentially, the child support guidelines will begin taking the mother’s income into account, which may decrease the amount that fathers have to pay. Our firm is well-versed in the upcoming changes, so contact us to learn more.
Spousal Support And Maintenance In Illinois
Spousal support underwent a major revision in the Illinois Statutes, effective January 1, 2015. The new statute provides a formula to be utilized by the court for parties who have a combined gross income of $250,000 or less, and although not mandatory for couples exceeding that amount, the court can use the new formula as guidance in establishing those sums of maintenance as well. Once the court determines that the factors are appropriate for an award of maintenance, much of the guesswork is eliminated by the new statutory formula.
