Frequently Asked Questions
- Can I automatically quit paying child support if I lose my job?
- No. You must go back to court and get an order allowing you to cease paying child support. Until you do this the child support will continue to accrue.
- If my spouse has an affair does this mean that I will automatically get custody of the kids in a divorce?
- No. Illinois statutes that marital misconduct, unless it has a direct affect on the children, will not affect a custody determination. Also marital misconduct will not affect property distribution.
- Do the police always have to read me my rights before asking me any questions?
- No. If you are not in custody, then the police need not read you your Miranda warnings. Many times it is difficult to determine whether you are really “in custody”, so it is the best practice to always exercise your right to remain silent.
- If one of the children that I was paying child support for turns 18, can I automatically reduce child support payments?
- No. Any change in child support amount requires a court order. Additionally, your duty to support lasts until the child reaches 18 or graduates from high school, whichever is later.
- Are mothers favored over fathers in custody disputes?
- No. The Illinois statutes provide a list of factors, which the court should consider in determining custody. There is no favoritism of one parent over the other.
