Knowledgeable and Detailed Handling of Child Support and Maintenance Cases
Even though child support calculations are generally based on a statutory formula, determining child support can still be a complex process. The data that is entered into the formula must be accurate and based on full disclosure from both divorcing parents. Beyond mere number "crunching," calculating child support payments sometimes requires detailed investigations and analyses. The court can also deviate from statutory guidelines when there is good cause.
At Borsberry Law Offices, P.C. in Peoria, Illinois, our founder, Joseph M. Borsberry, has handled hundreds of child support cases. He will ensure that your rights are protected throughout the legal process.

Addressing Complexities Beyond Child Support Statutes
At Borsberry Law Offices, P.C., we have a thorough knowledge of child support statutes. Depending on the number of children from your marriage, the amount of your net income going to child support can range from 20% (for one child) to 50% (six or more children). However, there is often much more to the process than identifying income.
Determining Accurate Amounts in the Best Interests of Your Children
While net income is specific in its legal definitions, many parents have income that may fluctuate greatly from month to month. They may be eligible for overtime. They may earn commissions or bonuses. Their job may require furloughs or layoffs. Parents may even not work on a temporary basis to pursue more education so they will earn more in the future. It can be even more complex to calculate income earned by the self-employed or business owners.
The process requires the guiding hand of a detail-oriented attorney who can get to the finer details and calculate an accurate amount and fair amount of support. Your children deserve that level of representation and our dynamic experience, whether we are representing the payor or payee.
