Lisle Child Custody Attorney

Judge gavel and colourful letters regarding child custody, family law concept.Matters impacting children are among the most volatile in the Illinois family court. As experienced Lisle child custody attorneys, we understand how high the stakes are. At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, we provide the aggressive legal representation mothers need to ensure their children are protected.

Lisle Child Custody Attorneys Help Protect You and Your Child

When dealing with issues pertaining to children, our Lisle child custody attorneys act as a strong legal advocate on behalf of the mother. Recognized as one of the top ten family law firms by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, our office fights to ensure any court orders issued are in your best interests.

Under the Illinois Statutes, the notion of the mother having custody while the father gets visitation has been replaced in favor of allocating parental responsibilities. This addresses two specific areas:

  • Parenting time, which is the amount of time the child spends with each parent during the week, on weekends, holidays, school breaks, and other special occasions.
  • Decision making authority, in regards to matters impacting your child. This includes decisions regarding education, religious upbringing, and their physical, developmental, and social needs.

How Our Lisle Child Custody Attorneys Assist You

At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, we provide the professional legal representation mothers need when dealing with child custody matters through the DuPage County court system.

Under court guidelines, parents are required to submit a parenting plan, detailing how parenting time and decision making authority will be allocated between both parties. If the parents are unable to negotiate an agreement on their own, the court will issue an order based on evidence in the case. Factors to be considered include:

  • The child’s age;
  • Their current relationship with each parent;
  • The geographic location of the parent’s residences and the child’s school;
  • The proven ability of each parent to provide for the child’s needs.

Once an order is issued, it can be modified at a later date, but only if there is a significant change in circumstances. To help ensure any orders issued are in your child’s best interests, reach out to the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group.

Our Lisle child custody attorneys represent you in court proceedings, making arguments and collecting evidence needed for a ruling in your favor. Call or contact our office online, and request a free consultation to discuss your case today.
