Child Support

Arlington Heights Child Support AttorneyArlington Heights and Chicago Child Support Attorney

In Illinois, the child support level is set by a statutory formula. The level is determined by the income of the non-custodial parent and the number of children, minus certain expenses such as health insurance, taxes, and others.

At the Law Offices of Roger W. Stelk, we believe that a parent entitled to receive child support should receive all that the law allows. We also believe that a person responsible for paying child support should not have to pay more than the law requires.

Our firm represents clients in all aspects of child support, including:

  • Determination of the required child support level
  • Modifications in child support
  • Enforcement of child support orders
  • Collection of back child support
  • Paternity as it relates to child support

Child Support Can Change Over Time

A temporary child support order is set at the time of separation and a permanent order goes into effect with the divorce decree. But incomes, living arrangements, and the health care or educational needs of the child can change over time. The Law Offices of Roger W. Stelk can obtain a modification in the child support level when a significant change in circumstances occurs. In most cases, we can do this quickly and at a reasonable cost.

In some situations involving self-employed payers of child support, determination of the payer’s true income level can present problems. Roger Stelk has represented many receivers and payers of child support in such matters, and understands how to research the facts and present a compelling case before the judge.

Whatever your child support needs or concerns, the Law Offices of Roger W. Stelk will work to achieve your goals in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
