Will County child custody attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses the changes in 2016 to Illinois child custody laws.
In this article, our will county custody lawyers explain recent changes to Illinois child custody laws. As of 2016, the terms "custody" and "visitation" are no longer used by the court system in Illinois. Rather, than assigning custody to one parent, courts no allocate parenting time and responsibility. The intention of this change is to eliminate "winners" and "losers" and reduce the amount of litigation in child custody cases.
Will County child custody attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses how Will County courts determine the allocation of parenting time and responsibility.
In this article, our Will County child custody lawyers discuss factors courts consider when allocating parenting time and parental responsibility. The standard courts use in making all determinations in child-related issues is the "best interest of the child." Courts determine parenting time and responsibility based on the best interest of the child on a case-by-case basis, by weighing several factors, including the child's school and extracurricular situation, parents' work schedules, and the wishes of the parents and the child.
Will County child custody attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses allocation of parenting time and responsibility in Will County custody cases.
In this article, our Will County custody lawyers explain the allocation of parenting time and responsibility. Courts will attempt to divide parenting time as evenly as possible, unless doing so would not be in the best interest of the child. Parenting responsibility is divided into four categories for major decisions. Responsibility for making decisions in each category may be assigned to one or both parents by the court.
