Upcoming Changes to Illinois Child Support Law

On August 12, 2016, Governor Rauner signed and approved HB 3982, which will become effective on July 1, 2017. This law will significantly change how child support is calculated in Illinois, shifting the state from the “Percentage of Income” Model to the “Income Shares” Model. Specifically, the new law will take into consideration the incomes and parenting time of both parties, child care expenses, and the potential earning capacity of both parties.
