Can a child support order add expenses for child care?

The main objective behind a child support order in Illinois is to serve the best interests of the child. While the courts will seek to cover every eventuality, other factors come to the forefront based on the circumstances. One is if a parent needs to pay for child care. A common concern is whether there will be an addition to the basic child care order to pay for child care expenses. This can happen and it is at the discretion of the court to do so. The court can order either parent or both parents to contribute to reasonable child care expenses. These will be paid to the party or directly to the entity that is caring for the child.

What is non-marital property with property division?

One of the most difficult issues to settle in an Illinois divorce case is property division. This is true whether it is a high asset divorce and there is significant property that both parties stake a claim to or if it is a more modest divorce and there are items of financial and sentimental value in dispute. The law has certain requirements for what constitutes marital and non-marital property. While there can still be a certain amount of confusion and disagreements over property, it is important for people who are planning to divorce or are in the middle of a divorce to understand the difference.
