What are the Child Support Percentages in Illinois?

How much someone has to pay for child support in Illinois depends on the net income of the person paying and the number of kids being supported.  Child support is based on a percentage of net income and it goes like this:

 

        Number of Kids        Percentage of Net Income

 

          1                               20%

          2                              28%

          3                              32%

          4                              40%

          5                              45%

          6 or more                50% 

 

While there has been talk about changing Illinois child support laws, this is current as of this writing in July 2013.  For a more comprehensive understanding of child support generally, read my article How Much Child Support am I entitled to/ Must I Pay, or to discuss your own child support situation, contact me and we can set up an individual, personalized consultation.
