When parents divorce or are single and no longer living together, child time-sharing arrangements In Illinois help ensure each person remains active and involved in the child’s life. Parenting plans are used in creating a schedule and allocating parental responsibilities. The following offers tips on what should be included to ensure your parenting works for you and your child.
Child custody agreements previously named one party as the primary custodian of the child and gave the other visitation rights. Today, courts are more in favor of allocating parental responsibility through the use of joint child time-sharing arrangements. Under the Illinois Statutes, parenting plans are now used to determine parenting time and responsibility in making decisions on behalf of the child.

Items that should be addressed as part of a parenting plan in Illinois include:
