Child support, in Illinois, is awarded to the parent who is granted custody of the child. It to can be used for the financial needs of the child including: medical expenses, housing, food, education, clothing or any other way the collecting parent sees fit. However, several of these categories can also be considered as "out of pocket" costs which can cause an inappropriate double dip of benefits. Child support is to be paid monthly and will be based on the child’s financial needs, medical needs, accustomed standard of living and how much income each parent makes. If for some reason the parent fails to pay child support, thereby causing arrearages, they can be held in “contempt of court” and will be ordered to pay the back child support (known as “arrears”) in full and can be sentenced to jail, fines, driver’s license suspension and probation.
