Geneva, Illinois Child Support Attorneys

Kane County Child Support Lawyers

Family law requires a specific kind of lawyer – one who understands the law but also has a firm grasp on the personal nature of divorce concerns, including child support. At Serrano Low & Hanson, we understand that our clients need more than a lawyer during this challenging time in their life. We take pride in offering sound legal guidance, offering innovative solutions, and seeing each client as the unique person with individual needs that they are. When it is time for you to address child support legally, our attorneys can help.

Child Support and Divorce

In Illinois, there are general guidelines that a judge will use to determine how much child support should be paid by the non-custodial parent. Some of the factors that will affect this amount include:

  • Number of children the non-custodial parent supports;
  • The net income of both parents;
  • Additional expenses including taxes, medical expenses, insurance, etc.;
  • The child’s previous standard of living; and
  • The financial resources of the custodial parents.

The judge will use his or her own discretion when deciding whether to raise or lower the amount suggested by the official guidelines. We offer our clients a comprehensive picture of their finances in order to ensure that the best decision for the child or children involved is reached.

Other Child Support Concerns

If the parents of a child were never married, the non-custodial parent is still legally obligated to support his or her child through child support. In some cases, this may require legally establishing paternity for the child before a court will enter a child support order. We can help you take the necessary steps to legally establish paternity for your child and to receive the support he or she needs from their other biological parent.

After a divorce decree has been finalized, there may be other issues that arise regarding child support allocation. If one of the parents loses his or her job, gets a promotion, or the custody situation changes, the child support agreement may need to be modified. We handle these along with other post-decree modifications that may arise as time passes. Our experienced attorneys will review your current arrangement and work towards a solution that better suits your needs.
