Child support laws in Illinois

Child support laws in Illinois establish a child's legal right to be supported by both parents. This support can either be direct through physical care or indirect through monetary payments to the person providing care. Most child support issues arise when one parent is providing the majority of direct care and the other parent is refusing to provide monetary assistance for their share of the care. The obligation to provide child support only ends when the child turns 18 or is considered emancipated through marriage, joining the military or declaring their own independence.
