Defending Your Interests in Cook County Child Custody Matters

Matters impacting minors and issues concerning their care and custody in our area are dealt with in the Cook County Family Courts. These proceedings have the potential to impact your child’s physical safety and emotional welfare and could jeopardize your own rights as a parent and your relationship with them, now and in the years to come.

At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, we provide the aggressive legal representation needed to protect your rights as a mother in these situations. We can assist you in submitting a parenting plan as required by the court, outlining matters such as where the child resides during the week and visitation over weekends, holidays, and school breaks, along with legal authority in making decisions on the child’s behalf.

Protecting Your Rights in Child Custody Proceedings

If an agreement cannot be reached through a parenting regarding child custody issues, the judge in your case will issue a ruling in the matter. Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes (750 ILCS 5/600), factors that often influence these decisions include:

  • The age of the child;
  • The previous and current relationship they have with each parent;
  • The parent’s proven ability to meet the child’s needs;
  • The existence of issues, such as domestic violence or drug and alcohol addiction, which could put the child’s safety in jeopardy.

Our experienced Cook County child custody lawyers work diligently in negotiating with the other parent and in gathering the evidence needed to support you in these proceedings. Our primary goal is defending your rights as a mother, while ensuring your child’s best interests and your relationship with your child are protected.
