While still frequently used colloquially, the term ‘child custody’ has been phased out of official proceedings in Illinois. Instead, the state refers to custody and visitation issues as the ‘allocation of parental responsibilities’. Illinois strongly favors joint custody and shared parenting whenever it is possible. Though, there are certainly still cases in which sole custody can be awarded.
Recent Illinois reforms also require divorcing parents to create a workable ‘parenting plan’. This plan is a legally binding agreement that outlines each party’s legal rights and responsibilities, and that deals with some general logistical issues. You need a parenting plan that best protects your interests. Our experienced Frankfort, IL child custody lawyers are ready to help you craft the ideal parenting plan.
Under Illinois law, child custody disputes are resolved by looking to the state’s ‘best interests of the child’ standard. State law always centers around the children. Family law courts are empowered to consider many different factors in order to come to a decision that will be best for the child’s:
As a parent, your wishes come second.

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.
