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.
