The Determination Of Child Support
During a divorce, it is likely that parents will agree that the children must be financially protected at all costs. What this translates to in actual money, however, is generally up for debate. A skilled Illinois divorce attorney will carefully examine all financial factors and guide you toward a beneficial resolution.
With years of experience on our side, the attorneys at Bruckert, Behme & Long, P.C., are prepared to guide clients through even the most complex, high-asset divorce. While the determination of child support in Illinois generally follows a set formula, our lawyers understand what additional factors can influence the final order.
We will ensure that all factors are considered, including:
- Earning potential of both parents
- Cost of extracurricular activities
- Medical or dental procedures not covered by insurance
- Cost of special needs education
- Childcare costs
Additionally, our firm is prepared to provide guidance if a support modification becomes necessary. It is not uncommon for parents to have to move, change jobs or face other financial changes. It is crucial to work with the court system rather than attempt to arrive at a verbal agreement with the other parent.
