Child Support

Child Support

In Illinois, as in most states, child support is determined according to a formula. Good child support attorneys ensure that the financial information courts use in the formula is accurate, so that the amount paid in child support is appropriate to the individuals involved.

At the Law Office of Frank J. Giampoli, Ltd., we use the same software the state uses to calculate child support. We use this software to predict the amounts of child support our clients can expect to pay or receive, based on the relevant finances.

We also assist clients in resolving matters involving child custody, child visitation and alimony. These matters, when taken to court, are generally decided at the discretion of a judge. Our law firm helps clients control the outcomes of these decisions through zealous representation in court, and when possible, by guiding them through a much less expensive and time-consuming negotiation or mediation process.

When Circumstances Change | Child Custody Modification And Child Relocation

When a person’s financial or personal situation changes substantially, it is often possible for him or her to seek changes in the terms of court-ordered obligations. We understand that our clients’ lives do not remain the same over time. As a result, we assist our clients in pursuing, and securing, child support modifications, child custody modifications, child visitation modifications and modifications of alimony (spousal support) when our clients, or their former spouses/co-parents experience:

  • A substantial increase or decrease in income
  • Remarriage or cohabitation with another partner
  • Relocation out of state
  • Inability to provide for the physical and emotional needs of a child
  • Alcohol or drug dependency, or violence in the home (or completion of treatment for such issues)
  • Arrest or conviction for criminal activity
