Frequently Asked Questions
Can I get child support modified if my income changes in Chicago?
Yes, if your income substantially increases or decreases in Chicago, you can file a petition to modify your child support order. The court will look at updated financial documents and possibly adjust the amount owed if the change is significant and lasting. Support can also be modified if custody shares change. Consult your Chicago child support attorney to determine if you meet the legal standard for pursuing a modification based on changed income.
Are child support and alimony treated differently on taxes in Chicago?
In Chicago, child support payments are not tax deductible for the paying parent, nor considered taxable income for the receiving parent. However, alimony is deductible by the payer and taxed as income for the recipient. Since child support is court-ordered to cover the child's expenses, it is handled differently than spousal support on taxes. Talk to your CPA and divorce lawyer about tax impacts.
Can I include college tuition in a Chicago child support agreement?
The court cannot order child support extended for college expenses in an original Chicago support order. However, the parents can mutually agree to include contributions to college costs in their divorce settlement agreement. Support for college is discretionary - consult your Chicago family law attorney about including it in negotiations or asking the court for an upward deviation.
