Child Custody And Visitation Lawyer In Cook County
When parents divorce, important decisions will need to be made regarding their shared child or children. The main issue usually involves where the children will live primarily and how to craft the best parenting schedule for the children and both parents.
The state of child custody litigation, and what it means for you as a parent is changing at a rate faster than any time in recent history. In Illinois, the new term for child custody and visitation is allocation of parental rights and responsibilities. The term covers both parenting time (child custody and visitation rights) and decision-making. If you have a dispute with your spouse over child custody and decision-making, you need to have representation that is at the forefront of custody litigation and is ahead of the curve — not chasing to catch up.
