Considerations in Chicago Parenting Time Proceedings

Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes (750 ILCS 5/600), the court favors joint parenting time arrangements as a way of keeping both parents active and engaged in their child’s life.

Factors the court considers in these cases include:

  • The role each parent has previously played in providing for the child;
  • The current relationship between each parent, the child, and the other parties involved.  
  • The parent’s willingness to cooperate and adhere to any court orders issued in the case.
  • The presence of past or current issues related to domestic violence, drug or alcohol abuse, or other behaviors which could put the child’s safety at risk.

How Our Chicago Parenting Time Attorneys Help You

In Chicago and other areas of Cook County, parents going through a divorce or involved in child time sharing dispute are required to submit a parenting plan to the court. This outlines parental rights and responsibilities and may form the basis for future orders in the case.

At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, our Chicago parenting time lawyers can help you in negotiating the best possible plan for you and your child. Areas to address include:   

  • Legal decision making responsibility in issues pertaining to the child;
  • Whether one parent will be the primary guardian or whether a joint parenting arrangement is best;
  • Plans regarding school breaks, holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions;
