Child support in Illinois is largely dictated by a statutory formula that takes several factors into account, including the number of children and the supporting parent's net income, as follows:
|Number of Children||Percent of Supporting Parent's Net Income|
|6 or more||50%|
In certain situations, such as when the supporting parent is self-employed or owns a business, it may be difficult to calculate this parent's income. Richard W. Culver, Ltd. has considerable experience dealing with these types of complex issues and can ensure that the supporting parent's income is calculated properly.
Under some circumstances, such as when the financial resources of one or both parents require it or when the special needs of a child require it, courts can deviate from this standard formula. In such situations, Richard W. Culver, Ltd. will make a persuasive argument as to why a deviation is necessary or unnecessary, as the case may be.
