Cook County and Will County Child Support Attorney

For many couples going through divorce, one of the most important issues is which parent is better suited to have custody of their children. For the non-custodial parent, one of the prime concerns is whether he or she will have to pay child support. If so, how much will it be?

I am child support attorney Lela Davis and I represent divorce clients throughout Cook County, Illinois. As a solo practitioner, I provide my clients with individual attention to help ensure that they understand their rights and what to expect from the divorce process.

How Does An Illinois Court Make A Determination About Child Support?

What many people may not realize is that child support determinations in Illinois are established by statute. The statutory guidelines outline a number of factors that courts must consider when determining who will pay child support and how much support payments will be. Generally, the amount of child support due will be determined according to how many children a couple has and whether a particular parent has been named the residential custodial parent in the case of joint custody or the sole custodian in a sole custody situation.

As a lawyer with years of experience representing clients in child support matters, I understand that the process can take a toll on parents. I work closely with my clients to set realistic expectations and to provide an overview of what a court is likely to do.
