Child Support Lawyers

Child support is an important component in many divorce cases. Illinois law indicates that child support be paid by one noncustodial parent (or parent who has not been awarded primary residency) when certain financial conditions are present. Child support may be ordered in cases in which the parents of a child were never married.
