Getting a child custody order is often a complex and time-consuming process. Once these orders are in place, there are serious penalties if you fail to comply. However, the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group knows that there are situations in which a previously established court order no longer is in your or your child’s best interests. Our Chicago child custody modification lawyer can help you make needed changes.
Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes (750 ILCS 5/517), courts look at numerous factors before issuing a child custody order. At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, we know that even if previous circumstances dictated a certain type of arrangement, the situation may have changed since the original court proceedings.
Our Chicago child custody modification lawyers can help you make changes to previous orders, which may be required due to the following:
In some cases, it is a matter of one parent refusing to comply with the terms of the agreement. Whatever your circumstances, our Chicago child custody lawyer is here to help.
Getting a child custody modification in Chicago is not always an easy process. Your first step is filing the appropriate legal documents with the Cook County court. You need to show that there are significant changes that necessitate changing the previously established court order.

In addition to filing a petition requesting changes, our Chicago child custody modification lawyers can represent you at hearings and in negotiations before the court or with other attorneys, while gathering the evidence needed to support your claims.
