Child Support Obligations

Your child has a legal right to receive child support from both parents after a divorce. Under Illinois law, the noncustodial parent is required to pay child support to the custodial parent.

The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act prescribed the handling of child support matters. There are several factors used to determine the appropriate amount of child support according to the Act, these factors include:

  • The financial resources and needs of the child
  • The financial resources and needs of the custodial parent
  • The standard of living the child would have enjoyed had the marriage not been dissolved
  • The physical, mental, and emotional needs of the child
  • The educational needs of the child
  • The financial resources and needs of the non-custodial parent

The following statutory guidelines determine the minimum amount of child support a non-custodial parent can be ordered to pay:

  • One child – 20% of net income
  • Two children – 28% of net income
  • Three children – 32% of net income
  • Four children – 40% of net income
  • Five children – 45% of net income
  • Six or more children – 50% of net income
