At Riewer & Collins, our family law attorneys are passionate about advocating for children’s best interests for our Riverwoods families during divorce. In order for a child’s financial needs to be sufficiently addressed, the noncustodial parent is usually ordered to make monthly child support payments. The payment amount is determined based on the noncustodial parent’s income and the number of children involved. It is not uncommon, however, for the parent ordered to pay child support to fall behind on payments or refuse to abide by the court order. Lake County divorce attorneys and judges have many options when it comes to enforcing child support payments.
Riverwoods clients trust that our family law lawyers understand how financially taxing it can be when parents are forced to meet the needs of their children alone.
