Child support issues in Illinois need an experienced attorney

Divorce leads to animosity and strife. In most cases, child support is one of the issues that brings out the fighter in many of us. It is so important to remember to put the best interests of the child first and try to keep them away from any arguing that may occur between you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse.

If you have residential custody of your child in Illinois, you are probably wondering how much child support the court will award you. They take into consideration the lifestyle your child is used to and they do their best to keep it the same.

If you are the one who will be paying child support, you definitely need to consider how much you will be paying and for how long.

Either situation needs an experienced attorney. At the law office of Alexandra M. Goddard you will find that we are willing to spend as much time as necessary to hear your side of the story and present it truthfully before the judge.

There are Illinois statutes that govern child support. The statutes are very specific and the court can deviate only a little from them. You will be expected to pay a percentage of your net income. That can be hard to discern sometimes because of different funding streams and being cash poor while having a large amount of property.

If your support payments have already been put into place and you want to modify it because of a change in income, we can help you with that as well. Being able to document your income is important and you will need to have bank statements, pay stubs and maybe even income tax documents to prove your income amount.

Remember, the Goddard & Malmquist Attorneys & Counselors at Law is here for you when you need it most. Getting a divorce is hard, but with the right representation you will have a peace of mind that your interests are served well.
