Obtaining A Fair Child Support Order

The issue of child support can greatly affect your ability to maintain the lifestyle you enjoyed during the marriage. Whether you are the payer or the parent who receives support, it’s important to calculate the fair amount of support.

Illinois law on child support issues was modified and new support calculation procedures were put in place in 2017. While there are statutory guidelines determining what standard support should be, there are variables that can affect the amount of support.

Attorney Marios N. Karayannis has handled hundreds of cases involving child support issues and has likely handled and resolved a case with circumstances similar to yours. Our law office is in Geneva, and we represent parents in Kane, DuPage, Cook, Kendall, DeKalb and McHenry counties and the surrounding areas.

Variables In Determining Child Support

In addition to basic child support calculations which are made via statutory guidelines, other support factors exist including contributions toward daycare expenses, extracurricular activities your children are involved in, medical and dental expenses, and college-related expenses and fees. Marios has the experience and knowledge necessary to ensure that you will receive the appropriate support you deserve if you are the primary residential parent. He will also strive to help nonresidential parents achieve fair and equitable support obligations which allow that parent to adequately provide for his or her children while recognizing that the nonresidential parent’s support obligations need to remain reasonable enough to allow that parent the ability to lead a reasonable lifestyle.

Modifications Of Child Support

Often, changes in job situations or the needs of the children can create situations where a modification of support is appropriate. Our attorney has handled numerous such cases on both sides of the equation, for both the residential and nonresidential parent, and thus has the necessary experience to handle your case if you find yourself in this situation.
