If you have a Child Support Case in McLean County, this recent case may be relevant


In re Marriage of Carlson-Urbanczyk

Illinois Appellate Court
Civil Court
Citation
Case Number: 
 2013 IL App (3d) 120731
Decision Date: 
 June 26, 2013
District: 
 3rd Dist.
Division/County: 
 Will Co.
Justice: 
 WRIGHT
Holding: 
 Affirmed.
Court granted mother sole custody of three minor children, and ordered father to pay child support in statutory amount of 32% of his net income. Court properly ordered father to pay 20% of children's daycare and extracurricular activities, rather than the 40% of those expenses originally ordered, as that would have reduced father's net income by 50% (total child support plus expenses). Any amount above agreed 32% of father's net income represents upward deviation from statutory amount and must be supported by record. Court properly found that father did not have ability to pay 40% of those expenses. (CARTER and McDADE, concurring.)
