Factors Illinois Courts Consider In Determining Child Custody Issues

Our Downers Grove child custody attorneys want you to know what to expect in a child custody case.  In this article, we explain factors that Illinois courts use to make decisions regarding child custody.

In a child custody proceeding, the court will make its determination of custody issues based on the "best interest of the child."  The best interest of the child is determined on a case-by-case basis by weighing several factors listed in the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) as well as any other factors that the court finds relevant, including those that have been developed by case law.

Allocation of Parenting Time and Responsibility Explained

In this article, our Downers Grove custody lawyers describe the changes to Illinois child custody law that went into effect in 2016.  

As of 2016, courts do not enter custody orders in terms of a "custodial parent" and "non-custodial parent" or "visitation."  Instead, Illinois domestic relations courts allocate parenting time and responsibility.  Parenting responsibility can now be divided among the parents, with each parent having responsibility for different types of parenting decisions.  Our Downers Grove custody attorneys discuss the factors that courts consider in determining how to allocate parental time and responsibility in child custody cases.

New 2017 Illinois Child Support Guidelines

In this article, our Downers Grove child custody attorneys discuss the child support reform that occurred in Illinois in 2017 and explain the new “income shares” model for calculating Illinois child support.

Under this model the total amount of child support for which the parents are jointly responsible is determined based on economic tables that take into account a number of factors, including the combined income of the parents.  Each parent's individual responsibility for contributing to the couple's child support responsibility is based on the parents' relative incomes. We explore the new law and how it may affect you.
