Understanding Your Rights in Illinois
As of July 2017, the State of Illinois adopted an Income-shares model in which both parents’ Income and the number of overnights with each parent are now part of the overall calculation. Prior to July 2017, a strict percentage was applied to the payor’s net Income without any regard to the other parent’s Income. To offset this difference, however, the new guidelines now require that the contribution to other child expenses be allocated according to each party’s Income. Under State law, amendments to the initial child support order can be made by the court in circumstances of a new job or a loss of one’s job
