What The Court Considers
When considering the outcome of a visitation and custody agreement or co-parenting plan, you need to understand that a mother has certain rights to see her children with only a few exceptions. However, a mother does not inherently have the right to sole custody or sole allocation of parental responsibility of her children.
There are many factors that the courts will need to consider. These factors include:
- The parents’ capacity to provide a stable environment for the child
- Any family history of violence, domestic abuse or substance use
- The child’s involvement in their community, including church, schools and other activities
- The existing family dynamic
- What the child wants, if the child is older
Illinois courts’ top priority is to find an arrangement that serves the best interest of the child. We help ensure that your role in your child’s life is a part of that consideration.
