Joliet Child Support Lawyers
Crest Hill Child Support Enforcement Attorneys
Under Illinois law, both parents share in the responsibility for financially supporting their children after a divorce. There are specific guidelines in place that govern how much each parent will be required to pay. While the guidelines are very precise, it is important to seek advice from an experienced lawyer who understands them and can ensure that the right figures are used in the calculations.
At the Mitchell Legal Solutions, our Joliet child support attorneys have extensive experience helping clients with complex child support matters, including calculation, modification and enforcement. We represent mothers and fathers in these cases. No matter which side of the case you might be on, we are prepared to put our combined 45 years of experience to work for you.
Working to Ensure an Accurate Child Support Order
Illinois child support guidelines are driven by a formula that calculates the support amount required of each parent. It is critical that accurate numbers are entered into the formula to ensure that an accurate support number is generated.
Our attorneys go to great lengths to ensure that both parents have made a complete financial disclosure so that we have a complete financial picture from the start. We know what types of income should be included and what should be left out when determining child support. We will look closely at your former spouse’s income statement and work to ensure that all eligible income is included.
We also help clients with child support modification and enforcement matters. If there has been a substantial change in the circumstances of your former spouse, we may be able to get the support requirement adjusted to better reflect the current situation. If your former spouse has stopped making monthly child support payments, we can petition the court to force compliance with the order.
