Illinois Child Support Calculator

One of the most common concerns among divorcing parents is whether or not one parent would be ordered to pay child support to the other in order to help provide for their children.

We built this simple child support calculator to give you a better understanding of how child support is calculated in Illinois. You will see an estimated sum that could be rewarded in your case by entering a few specifics about your parenting time allocation and each spouse’s monthly income. Please bear in mind that there are several variables that may affect child support awards that are not considered in this calculation, and the totals shown may not be precise for your specific case.

Contact our Chicago divorce attorneys to arrange a free case review to get a comprehensive assessment of the factors in your divorce and financial circumstance that can affect the amount of child support you will receive or pay.
