For parents, the safety of their children is always a primary concern. In cases of divorce or single parents who are no longer together, issues related to child care and parenting can get contentious. Even if you are able to reach mutual agreements regarding custody and visitation, a court order helps to ensure that both you and your child are protected. At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, we are a strong ally on the part of parents and children. Listed as one of the Best Family Law Firms in the Chicago area by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, our Oak Park child custody lawyers will provide the trusted guidance and legal support you need, so you can get the best possible outcome in your custody case.  

Protecting You in Oak Park Child Custody Cases

Issues pertaining to children and the rights of parents are among the most emotional and often hotly contested in the Illinois court system. Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes, custody proceedings are geared toward allocating parental responsibilities. This refers to the legal right to make decisions on the child’s behalf regarding matters such as their medical care, education, recreational activities, and religious upbringing, as well as rights to physical custody and visitation.

In these proceedings, the parties involved are required to submit a parenting plan through the Cook County Court, detailing the types of arrangements made regarding the child. At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, our Oak Park child custody lawyer can guide you in creating a plan that protects your child’s well-being and safety as well as your rights as their parent. Factors the judge in your case will likely consider in approving these types of plans include:

  • The current and prior relationship between each parent and the child;
  • Each parent’s proven ability to meet the child financial, physical, emotional, and developmental needs;
  • Each parent’s ability and willingness to cooperate with the other party in adhering to the plan;
  • Allegations regarding domestic violence, drug or alcohol abuse, criminal behavior, or other activities that could put the child in jeopardy.
