Interpretation of the Illinois Child Support Guidelines


Interpretation of the Illinois Child Support Guidelines. Determining the net income of the non-custodial spouse is rarely an easy task. Unsettled issues such as the deductability of non-reimbursable business expenses require that the custodial parent's attorney exercise greater due diligence in the discovery process.

It will always be necessary to examine the tax returns of the non-custodial parent in trying to ascertain child support. Non-reimbursed business expenses will most likely be listed on the non-custodial parent's income tax return. Sometimes, if the deduction for non-reimbursed business expenses are not itemized you may have to inquire further through discovery, as to what constitutes the unreimbursed business expenses and whether or not the person claiming the same has receipts for these items.
