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 complex child support and custody situations. Making important decisions about the financial security of a child is critical. Wolfe & Stec, Ltd.’s Woodridge child support lawyers are experienced in handling even the most complex cases.

Child Support Services and Child Support Adjustment

As experienced family lawyers, we have provided many child support services for decades. We develop enforceable child support plans. Additionally, we understand the issues facing families today and know that many things 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. These include 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 challenging 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 fearless in court fighting for you when you face non-payment of child support.


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