Obtaining Full And Fair Child Support

Beginning a new life after divorce brings many opportunities and challenges. If you are burdened with old debts and new restrictive budgets, however, you will find it hard to start over and seize these opportunities. As a parent, you need to plan ahead so that your child support agreement puts you and your children in a position to succeed.

Abrams & Ament, P.C., has represented concerned parents in the north and northwest Chicago suburbs in child support negotiations and other family law matters since 1984. Rickey J. Ament, our firm's primary divorce attorney, uses his substantial legal experience to design strategies that help you obtain the terms you deserve and receive modifications when the need arises.

Promoting Your Financial Interests In Negotiations And In The Courtroom

Child support laws have recently changed in Illinois, along with state divorce laws and statutes determining parental responsibilities. These are a few of the revisions may affect your monthly payments:

  • Support payments are now calculated using both parents' incomes after taxes and each parent's obligations are determined using state-approved guidelines.
  • Spousal maintenance and alimony can be considered as income for child support obligations.

Mr. Ament takes these changes into account when he advises you on your options. He uses his knowledge of child support guidelines and procedures to assist you in these matters:

  • Negotiating terms of child support payments
  • Obtaining and enforcing child support orders
  • Obtaining modifications of orders

Whether you are estranged from your spouse or are an unmarried parent seeking child support, you may find it difficult to secure a fair support order without a legal background. Working with our team ensures that you navigate the child support system effectively and avoid missteps that can cost you.
