Illinois parents who are divorcing have several options when it comes to child support arrangements. Parents can negotiate an agreement between themselves and their attorneys, they can use alternative dispute resolution methods, or the court may enter an order for child support in accordance with state guidelines.
Most fathers who are assigned a child support obligation may think that they are paying too much. After all, the obligation may not always reflect the cost of diapers and formula, clothing and of course, the costs surrounding transportation. And depending on how old a child may be, the inconsequential costs continue to add up.
