Changes To Illinois Child Custody & Divorce Law That Occurred In 2016

Lake in the Hills Child Custody Lawyers

Lake in the Hills Child Custody Lawyers

Our Lake in the Hills child custody attorneys discuss the recent reforms that have occurred to Illinois child custody laws.  These changes attempt to limit disputes and move the language of the laws closer to modern understanding.  Shared parental responsibility now falls into four main categories including medical, non-curricular, religious, and educational and are dictated by court order or the parents.  Terms including “visitation” and “non-custodial parent”  are no longer used and have been replaced with "allocation of shared parenting time and responsibility”.  This gives parenting time to each without calling either “custodial”or “non custodial.”

Marital Settlement Agreements Explained

Our Lake in the Hills custody attorneys discuss marriage settlements, their creation and how they're implemented.   Marriage Settlement Agreements are used during a divorce to resolve various issues regarding divorce including:

  • Custody
  • Support
  • Asset division
  • Spousal maintenance

These are common issues that are attempted to be resolved with these settlements.  The courts may accept these agreements,  but can reject what they deem “unconscionable” in their opinion to guarantee the interests of the child are met.  We explain these agreements and how to update or change them even once a divorce is finalized.  ​
