Situations involving children are among the most sensitive dealt with in the Illinois family court system. At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., our experienced Will County child custody attorneys have more than 125 years combined experience representing clients in these types of matters. Our knowledge of the laws impacting your situation and our dedication to protecting your rights as a parent help you get the best possible results in your child custody case.
Over the past several years, how the court views child custody matters and the laws involved in these types of cases have undergone some dramatic changes. Under the Illinois Statutes, rather than awarding one parent sole custody while the other has visitation, the court aims for agreements which help ensure both play an active and engaged role in the child’s life.
In allocating parental responsibility, the court favors parenting plans which allow the parents to share custody. It also grants each party decision making authority in regards to matters affecting the child, such as concerning their education, medical care, and religious upbringing. In these proceedings, you will be encouraged to negotiate agreements through your attorney or through court ordered mediation. In the event you and the other parent cannot come to an agreement, the Will County Family Court judge assigned to your case may issue an order in the matter. This order may include any of the following:
