Unfortunately, problems with the other parent can result in serious disputes, jeopardizing the amount of time you get to spend with your child. At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, we are a strong advocate on behalf of mothers and children, while also representing cases in which circumstances cause fathers to take action in seeking custody. In any situation in which your rights as a parent are in jeopardy, our experienced Highland Park child custody lawyer can provide the trusted legal guidance and aggressive representation you need.

Our Highland Park Child Custody Lawyer Protects Your Rights

In the family court, few cases are as hotly contested as those involving children. Our Highland Park child custody lawyer at the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group provides the knowledgeable, professional legal representation you need in these situations to protect your parental rights and the wellbeing of your child.

In making child custody arrangements, the court will generally rely on a parenting plan, which allocates the amount of time each person spends with the child and other details regarding the arrangement. Depending on your situation, options available may include:

  • Joint custody or co-parenting arrangements, in which the child spends equal amounts of time in each parent’s home;
  • Primary custody arrangements, in which the child resides with one parent while the other has visitation;
  • Legal custody, in which you have the legal authority to make decisions on your child’s behalf;
  • Sole custody, in which one parent is the primary custodian while the other parent’s rights are restricted.  

Guiding You in Highland Park Child Custody Matters

For parents going through the process of a divorce, determining child custody is part of these proceedings under the Illinois Statutes. For unmarried couples, paternity may have to be proven first before child custody arrangements are made. In either situation, the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group is here to help. Our Highland Park child custody lawyer will review with you factors that are likely to influence your case, which include:

  • Each parent’s current and prior relationship with the child;
  • The amount of time each has available to spend with them;
  • Each parent’s ability to nurture the child and provide for their needs;
  • The existence of problems such as domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, criminal behaviors, or other issues that could put the child in jeopardy.
