Illinois law requires child custody decisions to be in the best interests of the children. Most parents want to do what is best for their children. However, most parents also have differing opinions about what is best.
To help translate this overall agreement into an agreement on specific, real-world issues, Illinois law sets forth a number of factors to consider in this area:
Since Illinois is an income share state, the parenting time division often affects the amount of child support.
The child support guidelines in Illinois account for things like the parenting time division, the income of both parties, the age of the children, and some other factors. The guidelines are presumptively reasonable.
Spousal support determinations are a lot like child support determinations. In Illinois, a formula which considers the length of the marriage and income disparity between the parties is usually controlling. Judges can deviate from the guideline amounts in certain situations.
Child support and alimony deviations are often the keys to an equitable property division. Before marital property is divided, it must be classified. The classification process is often tedious and time-consuming.
Emotional and financial circumstances almost always change. If this change is material and substantial, a Naperville divorce lawyer typically must file a motion to modify.
Most marriage dissolution matters involve emotional and financial issues. For a free consultation with an experienced Naperville divorce lawyer, contact SLG Family Law. We routinely handle matters in Cook County and nearby jurisdictions.
