Child Custody Modifications
As a child grows older or as other circumstances change, it may be in the best interests of the child to change the custody arrangement. For example, custody arrangements may be altered if the custodial parent is now posing a harm to the child's mental or physical well-being. Other changes such as job transfers, an older child wishing to live with the other parent or schedules may also warrant a change in custody. Parental relocation with a child - when the custodial parent wishes to move from the state of Illinois or to another area of the state - can be extremely complicated requiring an experienced counsel at your side.
Illinois Parental Considerations
Thanks to significant family law reforms passed recently, the approach to child custody has changed dramatically in Illinois. Rather than concerning themselves with sole and joint custody, parents will be expected to focus their attention on the best interests of the child. This is to be done through the allocation of parental responsibilites. Neither parent will be a custodial parent nor a non-cusotdial parent; instead each will have specified responsibilities and rights to parenting time, rather than "visitation," with the child.
Our firm is experienced in handling these types of post decree modifications as well as those involving child support and visitation or parenting time. Contact us at 630-932-9100.
