Are you thinking about filing for divorce, but have questions about how the court will handle matters involving the allocation of parenting time, rights, and responsibilities? Have you recently separated from the other parent of your child? Child custody and parental visitation are among the most complicated and contentious in family law and our lawyers can help you navigate the complicated waters of child custody.
Emotions run high as dissolution of marriage occurs between partners, but add in a child or children and the stakes become higher for each parent. A child custody attorney in Mokena will assist parents with understanding their parental rights will fight for fair dispersion of child support when necessary, and uphold a client’s desire for a custody schedule or visitation rights.
We understand this is a difficult time in a family’s life cycle, and we will help you every step of the way during the process of a divorce and through child custody hearings or mediation.
A child custody lawyer has the experience and legal knowledge to assist clients with custody disputes, visitation rights, custody and child support calculations, and details regarding parenting time. Working with the child’s best interest, a child custody attorney will address the needs of a child, draft custody plans, and negotiate on behalf of the represented client.
The goal of any dissolution of marriage is to evaluate the competency, responsibility fairly, and degree of care both parents have to their children and allocate parenting time and responsibilities. In Illinois, the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) terms “allocation of parental responsibilities” and “parenting time” concerning custody and visitation. A family law attorney on your side will negotiate these terms and help move a case forward with minimal issues.
Parents are legally obligated to support their children by spending quality time with them and through financial modalities. Within the framework of child support, considerations are applied to custody schedules, any used spousal support, and expenses related to raising children. These expenses include daycare, school-related costs, health insurance, housing, and more. In Illinois, income shares are used to model and assess the income streams of both parents.
The child support calculation aims to ensure that the child enjoys the same standard of living as if the parents were still together. If you have any questions about your specific situation, you should consult with an experienced family law attorney.
You’re not alone if you’re feeling overwhelmed with the prospect of a custody battle. Our law office is dedicated to helping families through these difficult times and ensuring that the best interests of the child are always represented.

This place is 1000% recommendable! So far the process has been super smooth and easy to deal with. They placed all my worries out the window and I've slept better knowing they are on my team. Currently in tears knowing I'll be able to resolve this but sad that it's never going to be the family I thought I could have had. It's ok though, it's time to move forward. Thanks DnD.
