Cook County Visitation Lawyers

Two kids sitting on bed and reading a bookChildren do best when both parents play an active and engaged role in their lives, but there are situations in which it may be in their best interests to award one custody while the other has visitation. At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, our Cook County visitation lawyers provide the legal guidance you need to protect your rights in these situations. Whether you are seeking visitation rights or looking to protect your child’s interests in a visitation order, our reputation as one of the Best Law Firms in the Chicago area means you can trust us to act as a strong legal advocate on your behalf.

Protecting Your Rights to Visitation in Cook County

According to County Health Rankings, close to 40% of the children living in Cook County reside in a single parent home. While custody has traditionally been awarded to mothers, court proceedings today are just as likely to name the father as the child’s primary caregiver, particularly if there are allegations that the mother is unable to meet the child’s needs.

At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, our Cook County visitation lawyers defend the rights of mothers in these situations. We can assist you in obtaining visitation rights, and in petitioning the court to modify an existing order. Depending on the situation, we may be able to assist in cases involving the rights of  grandparents in seeking legal visitation, as well.

Representing Your Interests in Parenting Plans

In cases in which a mother does have custody, but visitation with the other parent is an issue, our Cook County visitation lawyers can guide you in the legal options available. Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes (750 ILCS 5/600), issues pertaining to visitation, such as frequency and arrangements for pick up, drop off, and transportation, are generally addressed through the parenting plan. Additional stipulations that may be included are:

  • Provisions regarding the presence of third parties during visitation;
  • Restrictions on where visitation occurs or types of activities;
  • Arrangements for phone calls, texts, and other forms of communication during visits;
  • Guidelines for how potential disputes or sudden changes in plans will be handled.

As experienced Cook County visitation lawyers, we understand how important visitation arrangements are and the impact they have on your child. We defend your rights as a mother in these proceedings while helping to protect your child’s best interests.
