Aurora Child Support Lawyers

In divorce proceedings involving families with children, the determination of child support is essential to ensure proper upbringing and secure the future of the child. The primary goal of these payments is quite straightforward: to let custodial and non-custodial parents share the financial burden of fulfilling the needs of their children. If the award amount is too low, it can leave the custodial parent with a substantial financial burden. Conversely, if the obligation amount is too high, it can end the non-custodial parent in the same situation.

At Keller Legal Services, we believe that children are the responsibility of both parents and their financial accountability should be equitably distributed. Our Aurora child support attorneys have exhaustive experience of over 25 years in helping clients with all their family law matters concerning children, including child custody, child support, paternity, visitation, and others. We provide skilled legal counsel to assist you in dealing with child support issues, and work diligently to seek desirable outcomes for support obligations and awards.

Aurora Child Support Calculations

In Illinois law, there are several guidelines available pertaining to the minimum amount of child support payments. But at Keller Legal Services, we carefully assess your situation and strive to settle on an appropriate amount, ensuring that your children lives in a way that causes the least disruption to their wellbeing and lifestyle they are accustomed to.

Child support matters are governed by the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act. Several factors are considered for deciding on the right amount of child support, which are:

  • The educational needs of your child(ren)
  • The healthcare needs of your child(ren)
  • The standard of living that your child(ren) is used to before divorce
  • The income and earning capacity of both parents
  • The emotional, physical, and mental needs of your child(ren)
  • The financial needs and resources of your child(ren)
  • The financial needs and resources of the non-custodial and custodial parent
  • Any special needs of your child(ren)

At Keller Legal Services, we know how important it is to set the appropriate amount of child support for the custodial parent and the child. We ensure that actual circumstances are presented in front of the judge and any hidden income sources are uncovered so that the child support is set correctly. We assist our clients with opposing or pursuing any deviation from state guidelines pertaining to child support.
