What is the name of your state? IL
My husband has delinquent child support he has been paying on for some time now, along with his current. I was looking at the papers and it says he owes a certain amount every week until the YOUNGEST child reaches 18, but says nothing about the older child (who will turn 18 nearly 3 years earlier).
Question 1: Is the weekly amount going to automatically decrease when the older child comes of age or are we going to have to hire a lawyer to have his half stopped? Otherwise we will be paying the same amount for 3 years for only one child.
It also has two other weekly amounts. One is for a 'delinquent' amount. It shows a weekly amount and also gives me a total so that I know how much is owed on that amount and I can keep track. But there is another amount for 'arrears' and it simply says it is 'more than 12 weeks' but gives me no amount or length of time. We have been paying on it for some time and I am curious as to how much he owes for it.
Question 2: Am I to assume that he pays this amount weekly until the kids are 18, or should I have my husband call the person in charge to find out what that amount is so I know how much we owe.
I am trying to get all of this in order so that I KNOW how much he owes in current support and how much in owes in back child support.
I appreciate any advice and assistance. Thank you.
