In January of 2016, Illinois phased out the term child custody. Under the current law, custody and visitation issues are officially referred to as allocation of parental responsibilities. The state requires parents involved in such disputes to craft a parenting plan. This type of plan is a legal agreement or legal order that details the rights and responsibilities of each parent. When accepted or ordered by a family law court, a parenting plan becomes binding. In many cases, parents can create this plan through collaborative negotiation. In other cases, the court may need to step in to resolve certain disagreements. Regardless, you need a parenting plan that truly protects you and your parental rights. Our Palos Hills child custody lawyers will help.
Under the Illinois state statutes, child custody disputes are resolved under the ‘best interests of the child’ standard. Essentially, this legal standard centers on the child’s needs. Whatever custody or visitation arrangement will be best for your child’s overall well-being and social development will be instituted by the court. While parental wishes matter, they are always secondary to the child’s best interests. Put another way, to get the custody arrangement that you want, you need to be ready to prove that you can provide the best possible environment for your child. Our Palos Hills custody lawyers can help you prepare and present a compelling legal case.

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.
