Experienced Chicago Child Custody Lawyer

mother and daughter spending time with each to receive the right child support speak with a Cook County Divorce lawyerChild custody is often a major point of contention between former partners. In addition to ensuring your child’s best interests when making these arrangements, you want to protect your own rights as a parent and your relationship with your children. At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, our Chicago child custody lawyers have extensive experience in handling these types of sensitive issues. Named as one of the Best Family Law Firms in Chicago, our decades of combined practice can benefit you in your child custody case.

Experienced Representation to Protect You in Chicago Child Custody Proceedings

Arrangements regarding the custody of children may be negotiated between you and the other parent involved, or the judge may issue an order in your case. Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes (750 ILCS 5/600), factors that are relevant in making these decisions include:

  • The age of the child and the parents’ proven ability to provide for their needs;
  • The ability of both parents to communicate and work together in regards to custody arrangements;
  • Current or previous issues, such as drug or alcohol addiction, domestic violence, or other criminal activity, which could put the child in danger when in the parent’s care.

At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, we have the training and experience needed to guide you in these situations. We can negotiate on your behalf in meetings with the other parent and at court hearings regarding physical custody of your child, along with legal authority in making decisions regarding their upbringing.

Ensuring You and Your Child’s Best Interests are Served

In Illinois, there are several ways child custody can be handled, and the details of your particular agreement will be outlined as part of your parenting plan. Depending on the circumstances, options available include:

  • Joint custody, in which the child’s time is divided between the two homes;
  • Primary custody, where the child lives with one parent while the other has visitation;
  • Sole custody, which is when issues that have the power to impact the child’s health and safety make it necessary to limit a parent’s right to custody and visitation.

At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, we will be happy to meet with you to determine the type of child custody arrangements that are right for your situation. You can trust our knowledge of the law and our years of dedicated experience to help you get the best possible outcome in your child custody case.
