Barrington Attorney | Representing Clients Regarding the Illinois UIFSA

At Richard W. Culver, Ltd., located in Barrington, Illinois, representation, legal advice, recommendations, and forthright services are provided concerning issues pertaining to child support across state lines into Illinois, involving the Illinois Uniform Interstate Family Support Act ("UIFSA").

Modification of Child Support across State Lines into Illinois:

Have you or your former spouse moved to Illinois?  Were you or your former spouse divorced in another state, in which a divorce decree/child support order was entered, obligating you or your former spouse to pay child support?  Was the divorce decree or child support order ever modified?  Are your children under the age of majority?  If any of these issues are applicable to your situation, you may be wondering how child support payments could be affected or impacted if either party has moved to Illinois, seeking to register and/or to modify the divorce decree or child support order with an Illinois Court.

Also, if either party has moved to Illinois, you may be wondering the following: Whether an Illinois Court would have jurisdiction over the parties; what state's law would govern any proceedings concerning child support in Illinois; and under what circumstances could the divorce decree/child support order be modified or enforced.

Versions of the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act ("UIFSA") have been enacted by all fifty (50) states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  The UIFSA has been designed to provide a mechanism for streamlining the modification and enforcement of child support across state lines.  Additionally, the UIFSA establishes which state's law will govern child support proceedings under the UIFSA.

Due to the significant legal implications involving modification of child support and the Illinois UIFSA, it is prudent to seek the counsel of a skilled family law attorney.  To learn more about child support across state lines into Illinois, including the Illinois UIFSA, contact Barrington attorney Blake Austin Culver at Richard W.
