Project Clean Slate
You may qualify to have all past-due child support owed to the state of Illinois erased if you can provide proof that one of the following circumstances prevented you from paying child support:
you became unemployed
you became incarcerated; or
you suffered from a serious illness
Accepted forms of proof may include a letter from a former employer, prison discharge or parole forms, or proof of disability or a doctor's note.
Once accepted into the program, you must make regular child support payments for a period of SIX (6) CONSECUTIVE MONTHS in order to have the remainder of past-due support owed to the state of Illinois custodial parent, however, would not be affected.
