    Answered . In Illinois, if the court has ordered a parent to pay child support, if there is income, the child support will continue. A court ordered must be modified by a person filing a Motion to Modify child support, showing a substantial change in circumstances. What I've seen happen is that the amount of child support keeps piling up while in jail, and then he is required to begin making payments once out of jail. Each case is different, as is each judge on the way they rule on these types of situations.

    Good luck.
