Parenting Plans and Visitation in Illinois

Parenting and visitation arrangements are typically negotiated between the parties and their legal counsels and signed off by the court. One of the first considerations is allocation of parental responsibilities. A parenting plan outlines each parent's assigned duties regarding the child, and helps helps determine rules, expectations and boundaries ahead of time so there will be more open communication and less conflict down the road.

Some of the important issues that are to be addressed in a parenting plan include:

  • Visitation scheduling;
  • Rules and responsibilities for both the parents and children;
  • Relational boundaries;
  • Education;
  • Healthcare;
  • Religious upbringing;
  • Communication requirements; and
  • Dispute resolution procedures.

In certain circumstances, other factors may need to be considered in keeping with the best interests of the child. For example, special needs children may require a parenting plan and visitation schedule that fosters greater stability. Also, if there are future changes (such as child relocation), it is helpful to decide in advance how such issues will be handled.

Illinois Family Law Updates

Thanks to recent changes to family law provisions in Illinois the concept of a parent's right to visitation has been replaced by the more comprehensive idea of parenting time. Even a parent with minimal decision-making responsibilities will still typically be permitted reasonable parenting time with the child. This is intended to keep both parents more fully invested in providing for their child's best interests.
