Illinois Child Support Calculator

One of the most common issues among divorcing parents is whether one parent would be ordered to pay child support to the other to help support their children.

We created this simple child support calculator to help you understand how child support in Illinois is measured. Enter a few details about your parental time allocation and each spouse’s monthly income to see an approximate amount that could be awarded in your situation. Please keep in mind that there are many factors that can affect child support awards that are not taken into account in this calculation, and the totals shown may not be accurate for your particular situation.
