As of January of 2016, Illinois no longer officially uses the phrase ‘child custody’. Though, in colloquial settings you will still frequently hear the term used. However, in official court documents you will instead see custody referenced as the allocation of parental responsibilities. In the modern era, Illinois law requires divorcing parents to create a court approved parenting plan. This plan is simply a legal agreement or court order that explains each parent’s rights and responsibilities. As a parent, it is highly recommended that you work with a New Lenox child custody attorney who can ensure that you are agreeing to a parenting plan that is best for you and your kids.

Illinois handles child custody cases under a legal standard that is referred to as the ‘best interests of the child’. To prevail in a child custody case, you and your New Lenox child custody lawyer will be required to prove that you can provide the best possible home for your kids. Illinois family law courts will consider many different factors when making custody decisions. Specifically, courts will look to approve a parenting plan that is best for the child’s:

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.
