    Default Back child support in Illinois

    My ex is already paying child support. It is court ordered. I'm taking him to court for back child support. He signed all the papers in the hospital stating that he was the father. What are my chances of getting back child support from the day our daughter was born?

    He is only responsible to pay child support, from the day your child support was legally started.
    If he's been paying child support since you filed for it, that's all he's responsible for.
    There is no retroactive child support.
    Now, if you filed for it, and he hasn't paid it since he was "legally obligated" too, well, that's another story. Arrearages he would be responsible for.

    Shouldn't he be responsible for pay child support since the day our daughter was born? We have a court date for back child support. The court wouldn't issue a court date for nothing. Maybe they would. I don't know. We went to court in may and it was made legal that he had to pay me. I'm getting child support now. One more question.. He just got a bonus for re inlisting in the army. It was for 11,500. Does my daughter get any of that?

    You said he is already paying child support pursuant to a court order. Was that a temporary order? If not, you're not going to be able to retroactively modify the order.

    You can inform the court of the bonus, and the court will consider it under the state's child support guidelines.

    The order was temporary.. The court also is getting his work records to see how much he makes.
