Will County Visitation Lawyer

Will County Visitation Lawyer

Spending time with children and participating in their daily activities is crucial to forming a strong relationship. This can prove challenging in situations in which the parents are divorced or otherwise no longer together. At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen, Massino & Pollack, P.C., we understand the serious disputes that can arise in these types of cases. With over 125 years combined experience, our Will County visitation attorneys help to protect your rights in making arrangements that are in both your and the child’s best interests.

Protecting Your Rights to Visitation in Illinois

For unmarried parents and those going through a divorce, child custody and visitation are often sensitive and potentially contentious issues. The Illinois family court generally encourages allocating parenting responsibility through joint child custody arrangements that allow both parents to continue playing an active and engaged role in their child’s life. However, there are situations in which one is awarded custody, while the other gets visitation.  

At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen, Massino & Pollack, P.C., we provide the professional legal representation clients need in making these arrangements. Areas in which we can assist you include:

  • Unsupervised visitation, allowing you to spend time with your child at your home and to share regular outings or vacations;
  • Supervised visitation, in cases involving the Illinois Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) or when there are allegations of issues such as drug and alcohol abuse or domestic violence;
  • Third party visitation, asserting the rights of grandparents, siblings, step parents, and others who have developed a strong bond with the child;
  • Modifications of existing orders, which can allow you to spend more time as a parent with your child.

Protecting You in Illinois Parenting Plans

In making arrangements regarding child visitation, the Illinois Compiled Statutes require that you and the other parent submit a parenting plan. This outlines physical custody arrangements, along with authority in making decisions on behalf of your child. At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen, Massino & Pollack, P.C., our Will County visitation attorneys can negotiate on your behalf in arranging details of these agreements, which include:

  • Weeknight visits and overnight stays on weekends;
  • Extended visits over school breaks, holidays, and other occasions;
  • Arrangements regarding transportation and pick-up or drop off locations;
  • Provisions that allow you to attend your child’s school, sports, and recreation events.
