Illinois family laws may differ somewhat from those in other states, and they are constantly being revised. For example, on January 1, 2016, Illinois became a trendsetter by changing terms like “custody” and “visitation” in divorce and parentage cases, and in 2013, the state legislature legalized same-sex marriage.
Laws are complex, and it is easy to become confused when dealing with legal terminology. In order to avoid making mistakes and complicating matters, it makes sense to consult an experienced family law attorney to help you through this difficult time.
