Top Visitation Lawyer in Chicago

mother with her little daughter playing outdoorWhen situations warrant awarding one parent custody while the other gets visitation, you need experienced legal representation to ensure both you and your child are protected. At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, we are the first law firm in the area devoted exclusively to women’s and mother’s rights. As one of the top visitation lawyers in Chicago, we act as strong legal advocates to ensure any arrangements made are in both of your best interests.  

Visitation Arrangements that Protect You and Your Child

As the result of changes in the Illinois Compiled Statutes that went into effect in 2016, the court views it in the child’s best interests to have both parents play an active and engaged role in their life. Of course, there are situations in which this is not wise or practical, such as:

  • When there is no prior relationship between the child and the parent;
  • When work responsibilities restrict parenting time;
  • When one of the parents engages in immoral or reckless behavior that could put the child at risk;
  • When there is a current or past history of domestic violence.

In these situations, you need the help of a top Chicago child custody lawyer to show the court while time sharing is not in your child’s best interests. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to arrange for a supervised visitation schedule to ensure your child’s wellbeing.  

The Right to Visitation

For mothers who have been denied the rights to full or joint custody, parenting plans can be arranged through the Cook County Courts that allow you the freedom to bond with your child during periods of extended visitation. In addition to spending time at your home during the week and on weekends, you may be entitled to the following as well:

  • The right to visit your child at school functions and recreational events;
  • The right to have them stay with you over holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions;
  • The right to extended visitations over summer and during school breaks.

In addition to defending the rights of parents, our Chicago visitation attorneys can also help defend the rights of grandparents, siblings, and other immediate family members of the child as well.
