Effective July 1, 2017, courts in the State of Illinois implemented changes to how child support is to be calculated. Child support obligations will be calculated using “Income Shares Method”.
Maintenance is a monetary sum paid by one spouse for the benefit of the other spouse upon separation or the dissolution of marriage; also called “alimony” or “spousal support.”
For years, Illinois statutes referred to decision making for the children of separated parents as “custody” and the time spent with the children by the non-primary parent as “visitation”.
