How Does Custody Affect Support?

In Illinois, child custody has little to no impact on the determination of child support. Child support is determined based on your and the other parent’s income. In some cases, the court may acknowledge the time the nonresidential parent spends with the child when determining child support. However, this only occurs if the nonresidential parent spends an excessive amount of time with the child than what is customary.

Regardless of the allocation of parental responsibilities, one parent will pay the minimum amount for child support as per state guidelines. Consult with our knowledgeable family law attorney to identify how a child support determination may affect your divorce or separation.
