Kane County Child Support & Enforcement Attorney

In a divorce, support is determined by the Illinois child support guidelines. While this calculation of support is largely formulaic, there are several factors that must be accurately investigated and entered into the calculation.

At The Law Office of Richard C. Irvin & Associates, we have guided hundreds of clients through the process of divorce. We understand the difficulties inherent in a divorce when children are involved. Our Aurora child support attorneys can help.


There are several factors that must be examined during mediations around child support. Even with the straightforward nature of the child support calculator, there are several variables that must be investigated to ensure a proper determination, including:

  • Net monthly income of noncustodial parent
  • Net monthly income of custodial parent
  • Medical insurance premiums
  • Day care costs
  • Education and extracurricular activities

Most issues related to the determination of child support can be resolved through mediation. As mediators, we have guided several clients through this process. Unfortunately, in many circumstances, mediation alone is simply not enough to resolve a dispute. In those situations, the matter will be resolved strictly by the calculator and a judge’s order. We believe that it is best to resolve disputes through mediation as both parties have a say in the outcome. Do not hesitate to contact a lawyer at our office to learn more about child support and the possibilities of child support modification in the future.
