Illinois Child Support Calculator
The state of Illinois recognizes the right of every child to expect financial support from both parents, regardless of the relationship between them. When the child’s parents are divorced, separated, or unmarried and living apart, the law provides that a court may enter an order for child support requiring one or both parents to make payments. Most often, the parent who has not been granted primary residential custody of the child is responsible for paying support and the amount to be paid is based on the supporting parent’s net income and the number of children for which payment is required.
