Professional Legal Representation From Our New Lenox, Illinois Custody Attorneys

Matters affecting the amount of time you get to spend with your child rightfully take top priority in your life. At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., we understand how important this is in establishing a strong parent/child bond, and the effect decisions made can have on your relationship now and in the future. Our New Lenox child custody attorneys offer professional legal representation to defend and protect you as a parent, ensuring custody arrangements are in you and your child’s best interests.  

Protecting You In Illinois Child Custody Matters

Custody cases involving divorced or single parents previously focused on giving one person sole custody and the other visitation. The Pew Charitable Trust states that Illinois is among the majority of states that now favors having both parents share equally in the joys and duties of being a parent by dividing both parental responsibility and decision making authority.  

At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., our New Lenox child custody attorneys work with you to protect your rights as a parent pertaining to the following issues:

  • Creating parenting plans, outlining how responsibility will be divided between each parent;
  • Arrangements allowing you to participate at school functions and social or recreational events;
  • Authority in making decisions that affect your child’s physical, emotional, and developmental health and well being;
  • Third party visitation for extended family members, such as grandparents and step parents.

Making Sure Your Child’s Best Interests Are Served

Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes, the court’s priority in making decisions is to protect the best interests of your child. If parents are unable to agree on a parenting plan, the court may issue an order based on the evidence in the case. As it affects parental responsibility and decision making authority, factors the court considers include:

  • The mental and physical health of all individuals involved;
  • The ability of each parent to cooperate with the other in meeting the child’s needs;
  • The role each parent currently and previously has played in the child’s life;
  • The proximity of each parent’s residence to the other;
  • The child’s current school district and their participation in school, recreational, and social activities;
  • The stated preference of the child, depending on their age and level of maturity.
