Child custody cases are deeply complex and fraught with intense emotions. Nothing should come before you and your children. There are no one-size-fits-all solutions for child custody disputes. You need to work with a professional who can get you the best possible results. In some cases, parents can use mediation to iron out relatively narrow disagreements. In other cases, aggressive action is necessary to protect the child’s safety.

In 2016, the state of Illinois stopped using the term ‘child custody’. Going forward, the state will use the phrase the allocation of parental responsibilities. While the terminology has changed, the underlying issues are largely similar. Though, Illinois now requires separated parents to create parenting plans, a parenting plan is simply a valid document that clearly spells out the rights and responsibilities of each party to the agreement.
Ideally, you and your former partner will be able to collaboratively create a parenting plan that is best for all parties. Our Orland Hills legal team will represent you during these negotiations. While we value cooperation, we also understand that there are situations that require a firm hand. We are always ready to fight aggressively for your parental rights when the time comes. Our lawyers will never let your rights take a backseat.
