Changes To Tinley Park Child Custody and Divorce Law That Occurred In 2016

Tinley Park Child Custody Lawyers

In this Learn About Law podcast & videoblog, Tinley Park child custody attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses the changes in 2016 to Illinois Divorce Law

Tinley Park Child Custody Lawyers

In this article, we discuss recent reforms to Illinois child custody laws.  The new changes attempt to limit disputes and move the law closer to modern language.  Shared parental responsibility falls now into four main categories including medical, non-curricular, religious, and educational and these are dictated by court order or the parents.  Terms such as “visitation” and “non-custodial parent”  will no longer be used and are replaced with "allocation of shared parenting time and responsibility” giving parenting time to each without calling either “custodial”or “non custodial.”'

Factors Tinley Park Courts Consider in Determining Child Custody Issues

In this Learn About Law podcast & videoblog, Tinley Park child custody lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty discusses Factors Courts Consider In Determining Child Custody Issues. 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.

In this article, our Tinley Park child custody attorneys explain the factors courts consider when they make decisions considering the allocation of parental time as well as responsibility.  These decisions are based on the Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act and examine issues related to the courts’ decision to factor the best interest of the child, parent’s wishes and the child’s adjustment to his or her living situation.   Circumstances taken into account by the courts include those of a parent's substance abuse or the cohabitation of a parent with someone of the opposite sex.  We summarize many of the circumstances the courts base their decisions on as well as how statutes and case law make an impact on the decision.​

Our Tinley Park custody attorneys explain marriage settlements and they’re implementation.   Marriage Settlement Agreements are used during a divorce to resolve issues regarding divorce.  Custody, support, asset division and spousal maintenance are common issues that are attempted to be resolved with these settlements.   Though courts may accept these agreements,  they can reject what they deem “unconscionable” in their opinion to guarantee the best interests of the child are met.  We will give you information regarding these agreements and how to update or change them even once a divorce is finalized.
