Major Changes to Illinois Child Support Calculations

In July 2017, a change went into effect in Illinois law redefining how child support payments are calculated. Prior to this change, the amount of child support was based on a percentage of the nonresidential parent's income and the number of children.

Under the new law, both parents' incomes will be taken into account using tables provided by the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services. These tables will specify the amount of money that would typically be spent to care for children based on parents' combined net income, and each parent will be responsible for a certain share of that amount, depending on the percentage they contribute to the combined income. Parents' individual amounts of parental responsibility and parenting time with their children will also be considered.

In some cases, the court may deviate from child support guidelines. The court may take the following into account when making custom child support arrangements:

  • The finances of the custodial parent and the non-custodial parent;
  • The standard of living the child would experience if the parents were married; and
  • The child’s emotional, physical, and educational needs.
