Long-term view vital for effective money decisions during divorce

Unfortunately, people often make mistakes when negotiating their divorce settlements. Advice about post-divorce finances could help spouses in Illinois avoid money problems after the end of a marriage. People should focus on the future and the possibility of unforeseen life changes.

How child support relates to social services

Many Illinois single parents are struggling to get by and support their children, especially if they are making their own way without child support from the other parent.

This can be especially likely when the other parent was previously responsible for carrying the majority of family expenses. However, when a single parent applies for government assistance and social services, one of the first inquiries he or she is likely to face from that office will be about his or her child support situation.

Less than 70 percent of child support is received by parents

Child support can help custodial parents make ends meet when they have to raise their kids alone.

The mean amount of child support that custodial parents are court-ordered to receive is about $500 a month. More than half of the parents who are owed child support don't receive the full amount. About a quarter don't get any child support at all.
