Child Custody and the Allocation of Parental Responsibilities

Recent updates to the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act mean that the approach to child custody is now drastically different than it used to be. The concept of custody in general is being shifted toward on focus on allocated parental responsibilities. Neither parent will be considered a custodial or non-custodial parent; instead, each will have specific duties and decision-making authority.

Existing Variations of Child Custody

Divorce agreements and custody orders entered before the new laws took effect may include provisions for several different types of child custody.

  • Physical custody: This refers to the place where the child lives.
  • Legal custody: This refers to parental responsibilities and decisions such as medical care, school, and extracurricular activities.
  • Joint custody: This refers to shared custody but does not necessarily mean shared physical custody.
  • Sole custody: This refers to having full physical and legal custody.
  • Paternity or parentage: Issues of paternity often arise when the father is responsible for making child support payments or is interested in custody or visitation.

The updated law promises significant changes to many of these considerations, as sole or joint custody will no longer be awarded to either or both parents. Parental responsibilities for both physical care and major decision-making are to be allocated based on the family's circustances and the child's best interests.
