Under past law, child support was based on the net income of the child support payer. It is 20% for one child, 28% for two, 32% for three, and 40% for four. Net income is defined in 750 ILCS 5/505 as gross income minus certain specified deductions.

One of the factors is NOT the amount of parenting time that each parent has with the child. However, there are a few Illinois Appellate Court Opinions that say that parenting time may be considered.

In the fall of 2016, the Illinois Legislature passed and the Governor signed a new statute that completely changes the way child support is calculated in Illinois. The new law takes effect July 1, 2017.

The law eliminates the former percentages and creates what is called the income shared approach. “To calculate child support based upon the parent’s combined adjusted net income estimated to have been allocated to the child if the parents and children were living in an intact household”. 750 ILCS 5/505 (a)(1)(D).

The Illinois Department of Health Care and Family Services is to adopt rules establishing child support guidelines which include worksheets for calculating the child support and a table to show the percentage of the combined net income “the parents living in the same household in this State ordinarily spend on their children.”

Practically everyone gets married with hopes the marriage will last forever. However, statistics reveal that 41% of first marriages end in divorce, 60% of second marriages end in divorce and 73% of third marriages end in divorce.
