Study examines disparity in child support

According to a study by Custody X Change, a typical child support payment in Illinois ranges from about $735 to $880 per month. The study used an average income of $55,000 for the custodial parent and $45,000 for the noncustodial parent. It also assumed that the custodial parent spent 65% of the time with the two children while the noncustodial spent the remaining 35% with the kids. The average combined income for two-earner families is $56,000 based on Pew and census data, so the exact figures may vary, but the study did emphasize the disparity in child support payments in different states.
