Illinois native Kelly could face jail time over child support

18665874_S.jpgMany Illinois fathers are obligated to pay child support to their former partners, often based on divorce settlements. While the amounts they agree to pay are fixed, they are not set in stone. People who lose their jobs or run into other kinds of financial difficulty might be able, with the assistance of a family law attorney, to have their child support requirements adjusted.

Sperm donor ordered to pay child support

20355139_S.jpgThe concept of child support is one commonly discussed where divorce is concerned. The term may also arise in cases where couples who were never married, split, leaving one parent to handle the day to day matters and expenses concerning the children. Until recently, few St. Clair County residents likely heard it in the context of a sperm donor. A man who lives in another state was recently ordered to pay child support to the lesbian couple he donated sperm to so that they could conceive a child. A now 4-year-old girl was conceived through the use of his donation.

Concept of shared parenting gaining more traction

21282486_S (1).jpgOn our Illinois divorce law blog, we often keep you updated on developments from other states regarding the evolution of divorce laws and how they apply to parents, especially fathers. The latest state to take on the issue of fair child support and child custody arrangements is wisely looking to other states with existing laws to determine how to best proceed.

State's bill would limit dads' monthly child support payments

23735147_S.jpgMost divorced fathers in Illinois loyally and regularly pay their child support obligations every month. After all, it's in everyone's best interests -- particularly those of the children who are aided by the payments -- to continue to pay. While some fathers feel as if they might be on the hook for more than what is necessary for their particular situation, they often feel as if they don't have much of an opportunity to change that.

Software aims to streamline child support process for parents

13181790_S.jpgDivorced fathers in St. Clair County know that keeping on top of finances after a divorce can be challenging. Regardless of whether a father has to pay child support to an ex-spouse or if he receives it, the timing of payments can sometimes be less than regular for any number of reasons. In many cases, parents could use all the help they can get.

Soldier is hit with child support increase while on active duty

9583237_s.jpgMilitary divorce, as well as child custody and child support matters involving servicemen and women, involve a number of challenges that are not present in civilian cases. These cases are often complicated by deployments and service schedules, and servicemembers also have complex retirement assets that may be subject to division. Additionally, these family law matters tend to involve federal law, whereas most civilian family law cases in Belleville involve only Illinois state law.

Child support a tricky aspect of family law in Illinois

22002172_s.jpgSince the courts in Illinois are already overburdened with child support cases, some parents will push the envelope by continuing to defy court orders. Typically, this means one parent is not receiving their court-ordered child support and finds themselves stuck, trying to figure out how to get the money that is owed to them. 

Update: Father's employee perks factored into child support

7293964_s.jpgBack in June we posted about a father who did not want his employee perks to be included as income when calculating how much he owes in child support. This request came after the man asked for a reduction in how much he was already paying in child support. He based his modification request around the fact that his salary was cut in half due to a decrease in enrollment in the college he is the president of. 

Drug abuse and modifications can play roles in custody sagas

12557039_s.jpgPeople should certainly not believe everything they read in the magazines and tabloids. However, it is important to note that when it comes to family law issues for Illinois fathers, there is something that can sometimes be learned from these stories by more reading in between the lines.
