DuPage County family law attorneysEach day, some 2,000 children are reported missing. Statistics indicate that most of these kidnappings are committed by the child’s own parent, not a stranger. How big is the problem, why does it occur, and what can you do to prevent it from happening to your child? The following explains, and it provides details on where to find assistance if you suspect that parental kidnapping may become an issue in your Illinois divorce case.

Examining the Causes of Parental Kidnapping

Although each case is unique, statistics offer some insight on the causes of parental kidnapping. For example, some 65 percent of all cases occur shortly after a parent has had a change to their rights. This statistic suggests a few possibilities; some parents may abduct their child to retaliate against a parent that has infringed upon their rights, but others may do so because of fear of losing their child or grief over the loss of quality time with them.

Illinois parentage lawyersParentage is the legal relationship between a child and their parents - both mother and father. Of course, parentage issues usually address matters relating to the father since, in the state of Illinois, paternity is not assumed when the parents are not married. Still, there are issues pertaining to mothers addressed under the Illinois Parentage Act. The following explains further, and provides details on establishing paternity, your rights as a parent, and how to address child support issues.

Understanding Your Rights as a Parent

Under the Illinois Parentage Act, every child’s right to receive mental, physical, and emotional support from each parent. From this, parents can conclude that their rights are, in actuality, privileges. Further, these rights are not in place to benefit the parent; they are there to protect the best interest of the child. Yet the best interests of the child and the rights of the parent do intersect. A child’s right to receive physical and emotional support from each parent provides the father with the right to pursue parenting time and allocation of parental responsibilities, and the child’s right to receive financial support from each parent gives a supporting parent the right to pursue child support.

DuPage County family law attorneysDespite your best efforts, your family law case may not have gone your way. Perhaps you received an unfavorable ruling on some key points in your divorce, or maybe you lost because of a default ruling. Alternatively, your case may have been mishandled by a judge that made a mistake or did not fully understand your situation. Whatever the reason behind your unfavorable ruling, you may still have options. The following explains these options, and details how you can ensure you have the protection and representation you need and deserve along the way.

Appealing a Default Judgement

Typically, defendants have only 30 days to respond to a family law petition. Failure to do so can result in a default judgement, which essentially means the plaintiff’s wishes are granted. Your own concerns - including any that you may contest - are not heard. Thankfully, it may be possible to have the default judgement reversed.

DuPage County family law attorneysUnless you have have had a child abducted and taken over an international border, or have attempted to adopt a child from another country, it is unlikely that you have heard of the Hague Convention. Yet it is an organization that all families should be familiar with, especially if they are considering an international adoption, believe their child may be at risk for abduction in a child-related family law case, or are involved in a domestic violence situation. The following explains further, and provides key details on how a family law attorney can assist with your case involving children and international borders.

The Hague Convention in International Adoptions

If you are familiar with history, you have likely heard of baby factories - places where women are “bred” and then give birth to their babies, only to have them snatched away and sold overseas. Of course, you may also assume that these factories are just a black spot in history books. Sadly, this could not be further from the truth. Baby factories still exist. In fact, Nigeria and China have both been focal points for international agencies that combat child trafficking.
