Child Support Is Determined Using A Specific Formula
After a dissolution of marriage, the purpose of child support is to ensure each child maintains a similar standard of living with both parents. This includes everything from health care coverage to educational needs, food, clothing and other forms of support. While both parents want the best for their children, it can be hard to think logically in these situations. Emotions tend to get the best of both parties, which is why having an impartial, experienced attorney is imperative. Mr. Lodermeier is here to remind you that everyone just wants the kids to be happy, even in conflicting situations.
In working with a lawyer, it can be easier to have these difficult conversations. Mr. Lodermeier aims to resolve issues quickly but correctly. He also firmly believes in explaining the law to his clients. This is so that everyone is on the same page and understands how certain numbers are calculated. For example, a number of factors are considered when determining child support. The age, earning capacity, and relationship between each parent and child are important. Most important to note, however, is the fact that Illinois uses a formula. It takes the net income of each party and applies a certain percentage based on the number of children a couple shares. If a judge thinks this number is unfair, they can adjust it as they see fit.
