Culver, Ltd., located in Barrington, Illinois, offers legal advice, objective assessments, and representation when a Support Trust pursuant to Section 503(g) of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act is sought by a party for any minor, dependent, or incompetent child of the parties.

Support Trusts Pursuant to Section 503(g):

According to Section 503(g) of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act [750 ILCS 5/503(g)], if necessary to protect and promote the best interests of the children, the Court may set aside a portion of the jointly or separately held estates of the parties in a separate fund or trust for the support, maintenance, education, physical and mental health, and general welfare of any minor, dependent, or incompetent child of the parties. Please note that necessity may be shown by the unwillingness or inability of a parent charged with child support to make payment. A Support Trust pursuant to Section 503(g) may be appropriate, among other circumstances, when a parent owing child support is unemployed or incarcerated.

Because of the complexity, the understanding of the legal and factual basis, and the significant legal implications involved when a Support Trust pursuant to Section 503(g) is sought by a party for any minor, dependent, or incompetent child of the parties, it is wise to seek the counsel of a support trusts attorney.
