On the Nature of Child Support and Maintenance Presumptions 2024… Hard and Soft

The 2019 maintenance guideline amendments did much more than simply make changes to our percentages from the 30/20 rule to a third/quarter rule. Instead, they reintroduced terminology from our case law and introduced many other overlooked provisions within our statute. This session addresses what it takes to deviate from the support and maintenance guidelines. This includes soft and hard presumptions, bursting bubbles, and the clear-and-convincing evidence standard to rebut the guidelines. Originally presented as part of Child Support and Maintenance 2024.

Child Support Guidelines 2024: Deviating from the Presumptive Award

P1912-24R-03
The Illinois Child Support Guidelines provide that the court may “deviate” from the presumptive award “if the application would be inequitable, unjust, or inappropriate.” Review how the guidelines were developed, what are they based on and what “other factors” have courts considered that should not be overlooked. Focus will be on how to argue for deviations including in a high-income case, how to argue for private school and extracurricular activities, and medical and childcare expenses.
