Are you a parent who is currently going through a divorce or marital separation in Tinley Park, Illinois? If so, it is imperative that you take action to protect your parental rights and the well being of your children. Child custody and visitations cases are complicated. To protect yourself and your children, you should not go through this process all on your own.
At Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd., our Tinley Park child custody attorneys have the legal skills and family law experience needed to represent you. If you are involved in a child custody dispute in Cook County, please do not hesitate to contact our law firm today to request your free initial consultation.
In 2016, the state of Illinois passed important child custody reforms. Among other things, the bill phased out the term ‘child custody’. This issue is now referred to as the allocation of parental responsibilities. Beyond that, state law now compels parents to create a parenting plan. In essence, this plan is a legal document that will outline your parental rights and responsibilities.
When approved by a Cook County family law court, your parenting plan will have binding legal authority. Creating a parenting plan is a highly complex task. You and your former partner may be able to negotiate and come to an agreement, or you may have to have certain issues resolved by a court. Regardless, you should be represented by a Tinley Park child custody lawyer who can help you craft a plan that fully protects your parental interests.
In Illinois, child custody disputes are resolved under the state’s ‘best interests of the child’ standard. Simply put, this legal standard centers on the child’s needs and interests. Family law courts will look to craft a custody and visitation arrangement that best protects the child’s physical safety, psychological health, emotional well-being, and social development. As a parent, you need to be ready to demonstrate that you can provide this type of stable living environment. Our Tinley Park child custody lawyers can help you build a strong case, so that you can protect your legal rights.
At Law Office of Demetrios N Dalmares and Associates Ltd., our Tinley Park child custody lawyers have the skills and experience needed to protect your parental rights. When you work with our law firm, you will always get the personalized attention that you deserve. For a free, fully confidential child custody consultation, please call us today at (708) 403-0200.
