I am currently working on a divorce case which is contested in every sense of the word. There are four children from the marriage and neither side can agree on a child support amount due to the mother from the father. I'm wondering if any of you are paralegals in the family law field in Illinois and/or know of any good sources of how to accurately compute child support. I know the basics such as going from bi-weekly to monthly, figuring the standard deductions, and using the statutory child support percentages. However, I don't have a lot of experience in other deductions (such as what types of insurance can be deducted) or figuring the amount for each exemption.
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
