Deviations from the child support guidelines in Illinois


If a parent is no longer with the other parent of their child in Illinois, there is a very good chance that one parent is ordered to pay child support to the other. The child support payment is generally paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent. Child support is there to ensure that the child's basic needs, such as food, shelter and clothing are being met by both parents.

Obtaining guardianship of a minor in Illinois


There are many different family situations in Illinois. In many instances, the parent of a child is not the one actually caring for the child for one reason or another. Many times this responsibility falls on the grandparents or another family member such as an uncle or aunt. However, just because the child is living with the other family member, the situation does not give that family member parental rights. These situations may involve various family law issues and those involved can benefit from utilizing an attorney.

The complexity of the property division can vary greatly.
