Maintenance & Child Support

During a divorce, it may be necessary for one party to provide regular financial support to the other party. Aside from awarding a lump-sum, there are two forms of financial support: child support and maintenance.

While Illinois law provides statutory formulas for calculating child support and maintenance, the application is rarely straightforward.  The law is rapidly evolving.

In any case concerning child support or maintenance, it is critical that your family law specialist understand these changes and their relationship to other components of the divorce, such as parenting time and allocation of other property.
