I have 2 questions - DSS in SC ordered child support to be paid to us by my grandchildrens father, (we have full custody) they ordered only $100.00 month for 2 children; because of the situation. His finances have now changed and I would like the support amount modified. We all live in Illinois. My first question is - can I and how do I get the amount modified.
My 2nd question - he hasn't paid any child support so far, where do I go to try to get the back pay - Illinois or SC

If the father is still in SC, it will most likely need to be filed here in SC. A lot will depend on the specific facts of your particular case.
These are complex issues, and it is important that they be handled correctly. Therefore, it is important that you consult an experienced family law attorney to find out what options are available to you based on the facts of your particular case.
