Top Ten Myths in Illinois Divorce Cases [Myth #6]

Myth: If I have shared or joint legal custody, and a shared visitation schedule, I won’t have to pay any child support.

Not true. Courts are loathe to not award child support. They will look at the parenting schedule but they will also pay very close attention to the financial resources of the parties and more often than not will award the less financially well-to-do parent child support, provided that parent has at least fifty percent of the parenting time or more.
