Chicago Child Support Attorneys
Serving Cook, Will, DuPage & Lake Counties
Child support is an issue that arouses enormous parental emotion. So deciding the proper amount of support for your child is often the most hotly disputed component of a divorce proceeding.
The good news is that most families manage to negotiate an agreement that both sides can live with. At the The Walters Law Group, Ltd., we work with both married and unmarried individuals to establish the right amount of child support for their children.
We seek first to negotiate, to move past disagreements and arrive at a successful, affordable resolution. At the same time we make it plain that we have no hesitation to take our skills to litigation if necessary. Firms that know us usually opt to settle.

Cook County Child Support Lawyer
The state relies on Illinois Child Support Guidelines to calculate appropriate support levels. The guidelines provide a formula into which you supply information about your income and expenses. You can learn more @ www.childsupportillinois.com.
But it is not really that simple. Every family is different and you will need an experienced lawyer at your side to be certain the Court has an accurate understanding of your finances and expenses. At The Walters Law Group we have helped hundreds of families obtain an appreciable advantage in this battle of numbers.
We Assist With Modification and Enforcement of Support Orders
Modification is the process used to institute a change in a child support order. If the circumstances of either party have substantially changed (such as a considerable increase in wages, decrease in income or an increase in your child’s financial needs), a petition for modification of the child support order may be in the best interests of the child. A lawyer at our firm can assist you in dealing with all aspects of child support modification and enforcement.
