Illinois no longer uses the term child custody in official proceedings. Instead, custody and visitation issues are now referred to as the allocation of parental responsibilities. In addition, state law requires divorced and separated parents to craft a parenting plan to resolve any dispute. A parenting plan is a valid legal document that highlights the rights and responsibilities of the parents. Whether you and your former partner want to work towards a mutually beneficial parenting plan, or you are locked in a fierce dispute over such a plan, our Palos Park child custody lawyers can assist you.
Under Illinois law, family law courts will make and approve custody arrangements using the ‘best interests of the child’ legal standard. If you are a parent in Palos Park who is going through a child custody dispute, it is important that you know how this standard will apply to your case. Your preferred custody or visitation arrangement will not decide the dispute. Instead, you need to work with a lawyer who can help you prove that you can provide the best home for your child. In assessing custody cases, family law courts will take a comprehensive view. Factors that may be considered include:

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.
