Advocating For Your Parental Rights In Child Custody Cases
Regardless of what type of divorce you are going through or the difficulties and the challenges you might encounter, one thing remains absolutely certain: Your children require the best love and care that is available to them. Our children are the most important parts of our lives, and we must do everything in our power to ensure their safety.
Factors That Influence Child Custody/Allocation Of Parental Responsibility Decisions
The determination of child custody in Illinois is based on the best interest of the child standard. The court considers relevant factors, including but not limited to:
- Both the parents’ and child’s wishes
- The family dynamic, including relationships with siblings and extended family
- The child’s home, school and community
- The mental and physical health of all individuals involved
- Any history of physical violence in the home or by the parents
- Any history of abuse
- Each parent’s willingness to foster a positive relationship between the child and the other parent
Illinois courts use the term “parenting time” to describe how unmarried or divorced parents can share the joys and responsibilities of caring for a child. We can advocate for a parenting plan that suits your needs as well as the needs of your child.
