Child Support Archives

Comedian falls behind on child support, ordered to pay $10,000

Due to the recent recession, many fathers have found themselves in tough financial spots unable to keep up with child support payments. How this happens absolutely makes sense. However, without first obtaining a child support modification, a father can find himself facing significant criminal consequences for falling behind.

Child support frustrations for Illinois father

One Illinois father and his wife are finally starting to see the light at the end of the child support tunnel. But this is only after years of frustration and complications where the man was paying his ex-girlfriend child support for his twin daughters, yet the state was messing up what he owed and how much he should be paying.

Mayor reaches temporary child support agreement

During a divorce it can be quite difficult to come to an agreement, especially when there are children involved. Parents need to reach an agreement on not only what is best for the child in terms of physical custody, but also what an appropriate amount of child support paid by the noncustodial parent should be each month.

Unpaid child support lands one father behind bars

For many parents -- whether they are going through a divorce or just splitting up -- determining child support will be part of that process. This means each parent will need to provide proof of their earnings. A judge will then look at not just income, but also the needs of the child.

Talk with an attorney before falling behind on child support

Illinois parents going through a divorce can expect that statutory guidelines will be used to help determine how much one parent should be paying and how much the other parent should be receiving in child support. These child support guidelines are heavily dependent on how much the non-custodial parent earns. However, other factors such as medical expenses and child care costs are also factored in to the total amount that should be paid.

How child support could affect obtaining a car loan

There are plenty of divorced parents in Illinois who are making or receiving child support payments. And while most understand these payments are intended to go toward cost of living expenses -- like food, shelter and clothing -- many are shocked to learn that either paying or receiving child support can have an effect on how lenders view their financial risk situation.

Change in finances leads to child support modification request

Family circumstances can change for a number of reasons. A father can end up laid off and out of work, or taking a job where he earns less. Or maybe, he knows he is going to be going through a surgery and will be out of work for several months. In all of these situations, the father may attempt to have his child support payments reduced by asking the courts for a modification to an existing order.

T.O.'s unpaid child support teaches lesson to Illinois fathers

Terrell Owens, the former wide receiver for the Bengals commonly known as "T.O.," was once again in the news for issues related to child support. Over the months this has been an ongoing issue for Owens, as the mother of his child has filed three complaints in the last year related to him supposedly not paying his court-ordered child support.

Fathers are awarded child support too

In the context of talking about child support, many people assume that the mother is the custodial parent, and the father is paying child support on a weekly or monthly basis. However, this is not always true and there are plenty of situations where a father has custody and receives child support from the mother.
