Culver, Ltd. provides represention, legal advice, recommendations, and forthright services concerning issues relating to post-secondary educational expenses, including college, university, vocational, or training school, in connection with the Illinois Uniform Interstate Family Support Act ("Illinois UIFSA").

Post-Secondary Educational Expenses across State Lines into Illinois:

Have you or your former spouse moved to Illinois? Were you and your former spouse divorced in another state, in which a divorce decree/child support order was entered?  Was the divorce decree or child support order ever modified?  Is your child reaching the age of majority?  If any of these issues are applicable to your situation, you may be wondering whether you or your former spouse are obligated to pay for post-secondary educational expenses if either party moves to Illinois, seeking to register the divorce decree/child support order with an Illinois Court.

Moreover, if either party moves to Illinois, you may be wondering the following: Whether the divorce decree/child support order could be modified to provide for post-secondary educational expenses; whether an Illinois Court would have jurisdiction over the parties; and what state's law would govern any proceedings in connection with post-secondary educational expenses.

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 the obligation of support across states lines.  Furthermore, the UIFSA establishes which state's law will govern child support proceedings under the UIFSA.

It is prudent to seek the counsel of a skilled family law attorney due to the profound legal implications involving post-secondary educational expenses and the Illinois UIFSA.  To learn more about post-secondary educational expenses, such as college, university, vocational, or training school, across state lines into Illinois, including the Illinois UIFSA, contact Barrington attorney Blake Austin Culver at Richard W.
