Gurnee, IL asked in Child Support for Illinois

Q: I live in Illinois does the new income share model take into account other children from a different relationship?

The other children do not have a court order support order. Are they taking into account with the new child support income support model? The HFS calculator shows it does but when I’m filling out the financial affidavit it does not ask if there are other children without a court order child support from another relationship.

A: The calculator for child support and the Financial Affidavit are for different purposes.

The Financial Affidavit is not only to see income and expenses but also to determine division of assets and liabilities.
