Understanding Child Support in Illinois

In 2017, Illinois adopted the “income shares” model, which bases child support on the combined income of both parents, reflecting the financial support the child would have received if the household remained intact. This model considers the Basic Support Obligation relative to the parents’ total net income and allocates responsibility based on individual income shares.

Addressing Additional Expenses

Beyond basic living needs, child support may also cover health insurance, out-of-pocket medical costs, child care, educational expenses, and extracurricular activities. In some cases, contributions to college expenses may also be mandated such as not exceeding the cost of attending the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for that year.
