Can a stepfather be forced to pay child support in Illinois?
Only if he adopts the child and he and the other parent later separate/divorce.
There may be some variable for interpretation here. If he's the child's only parental influence, and the father is unknown, a judge may order it, along with all the rights of a father.
If you are forced to give up your parental rights in the state of Illinois can you be forced to pay child support?
The biological father may only stop paying child support under one of the following four circumstances: Death of the child; the child turns 18 and decides not to pursue higher education; the child quits or graduates higher education; or the biological father is found not to be the "true" father. So, if a stepfather adopts them, more than likely, the biological will still be responsible for child support.
Not exactly. In Illinois, child support cannot be ordered past the age of majority but "education support" can be. One or even both parents may be ordered to pay education support, based on the child's academic expenses. Education support must also be ordered by a judge, separately from a child support order.

What is the procedure to stop child support payments in Illinois when the child becomes 18 years of age?
If the mother says the child is yours and you do not fight it and demand a DNA test, and she was not married at the time of birth, yes, you can be forced to support a child that is not yours. Conversely, if you were married to her when the child was conceived and or born you will be responsible for child support as the child was made during your marriage. see links

In the state of Massachusetts if a biological father is unaware of a child and the child is adopted by his stepfather is the bio dad responsible for any back child support?
Well if the Bio father is unaware of the baby then I don't believe he has to pay child support because the mom decided that the father didn't need to know about the child and if the child is adopted (like me) either by a step dad or by a different set of parent AND the father know about the child Then the father would need to pay back child support.

Is there legal aid for low income fathers in Chicago Illinois for child support reduction or elimination cases?
Child support obligations end at the time stated in the support order. Either the order will stipulate a specific age or it will state "at the age of majority" which in Illinois is 18. It would be a wise choice for the obligated parent to contact the court to be certain he or she is taking the correct action when ending support payments.
