Understanding Child Custody in Illinois

In Illinois, the traditional terms “child custody” and “visitation” have been replaced with the more equitable terms “allocation of parental responsibilities” and “parenting time.” This shift in language underscores the shared responsibilities and time that both parents have with their children, albeit in different proportions depending on individual circumstances.

Allocation of parental responsibilities refers to significant decision-making duties about the child’s health, education, religion, and extracurricular activities. Parenting time, formerly known as “visitation,” pertains to the regular, day-to-day periods in which each parent is responsible for the child’s upbringing.

The court may allocate significant decision-making responsibilities to both parents or only one parent, depending on the specific circumstances. These decisions are outlined in a court-approved document known as a parenting plan. The court considers the child’s best interests when determining the allocation of significant decision-making responsibilities and parenting time. Factors taken into account include the child’s well-being, cultural upbringing, and the involvement of both parents in raising the child.

Our Experience in Complex Property Division

Beyond child custody, divorce involves several daunting aspects, including the division of marital property. Our attorneys have extensive experience in complex property division, including high net worth divorce and dissolution of long-term marriages. They provide assistance in dividing marital property during divorce, ensuring a fair and equitable distribution. For couples who have shared business interests, we offer accurate business valuations to ensure an equitable division of assets.
