Representing You in Parenting Time Proceedings

In child custody proceedings, attitudes have changed over the years. Previously, one parent would be named as the sole custodian, while the other gets visitation. In 2016, the laws in Illinois changed. Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes (750 ILCS 5/600), the court now favors joint parenting time arrangements.

At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, our Cook County parenting time lawyers, we can guide you through these proceedings, ensure any orders issued take into consideration the specific circumstances involved in your case. Factors the court is likely to consider in making parenting time arrangements include:

  • The previous and current role each parent plays in the child’s life.
  • Each parent’s proven ability to provide for the child’s physical, emotional, and developmental needs.
  • The ability of both parents to cooperate with one another, putting the child’s best interests first.
  • Issues such as domestic violence or drug and alcohol abuse, which could put the child in jeopardy.
