When determining which parent receives child custody, Illinois follows the tradition of determining what is in the best interest of the child. State law sets out several “relevant factors” that determine what living condition would be in the child's best interest:
If one of the spouses in the case is a stepparent to the child, then the court tends to favor the “natural” or biological parent for custody of a minor child. If the stepparent can prove to the court why they should be given custody over the biological parent, the court may grant custody to them.
