What Are the Steps After I Hire a Woodridge Child Support Attorney?

How the Process Works

While we have extensive experience helping local families navigate child support issues, we realize that no two cases are the same. Thus, the first, and perhaps most important step we take is to sit down with you and listen closely to the things that are bothering you most and keeping you awake at night. We will take copious notes and work to understand your priorities. Then we will explain recent case law and existing statutes that may work in your favor and help you achieve your desired outcome.

We will craft convincing arguments that implore the judge to enforce already-existing orders for child support, and we will look for new arguments for additional or increased financial support.

Our Woodridge child support attorneys will file legal briefs on your behalf and argue in front of a judge if necessary. We understand that the costs associated with raising a child are significant.; they can be too much for any one parent to undertake.

Divorce Can Cause Child Support Disagreements

Divorce is rarely easy. So many factors change when you move from one household to two. When a couple gets divorced and children are involved, parents are often faced with difficult situations regarding child support and child custody. Making important decisions about the financial security of a child is extremely important. The Woodridge child support lawyers of Wolfe & Stec, Ltd., are experienced in handling even the most complex child support cases.

Child Support Services and Child Support Adjustment

As experienced family lawyers, we have been providing a full range of child support services for decades. We develop enforceable child support plans. Additionally, we understand the issues facing families today and are well aware of all the things that can go wrong. At Wolfe & Stec, Ltd., we provide families with the following child support services:

  • Initial calculations of child support
  • Securing child support
  • Child support modifications
  • Adjustments of child support
  • Enforcement in cases of non-payment of child support
  • Penalties for late payment and failure to pay support.

When determining child support for the first time, we closely examine the financial situations of both parents. This includes an analysis of earnings, income, and other financial resources. It is important to note that many different variables can impact how income is treated for purposes of child support.

Non-Payment of Child Support

Divorce marks the end of a marriage but does not impact the responsibility of both parents to provide financially for their children. One of the most difficult situations a parent can deal with is when the other parent fails to pay child support. This scenario is all too familiar, and the one who ultimately suffers is the child.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in divorce and family law litigation. We are not afraid to fight aggressively in court regarding the non-payment of child support.

A child should not have to suffer because of the irresponsibility or bad behavior of a parent.

If you find yourself stuck with an ex-spouse who refuses to consistently pay child support, you don’t have to struggle alone. Call a skilled Woodridge child support lawyer at Wolfe & Stec today at 630-305-0222 or 312-388-7882 so that we can find a solution together. Our years of experience with these cases can work in your favor.

Recent Family Law Results

During trial four experts all testified against our client the Judge found it was in the best interest of the child that our client be awarded custody. We have successfully represented clients in numerous child custody cases.

Child Custody

We recently analyzed a case whereby the opposing side was seeking a substantial award of maintenance against our client. After a thorough review of the facts and circumstances and several hearings, our client’s obligation to pay maintenance was limited to two years at half of what his former spouse was seeking.

Alimony (Maintenance/Support)

After our client voluntarily changed employment we were able to obtain a substantial reduction in child support payments. We have also stopped such reductions when representing clients receiving child support.
