Child Custody and Your Parental Rights

Illinois parents are naturally concerned for the well being of their children after divorce. The preservation of the parent-child relation is tantamount, but it can be an overwhelming task during the complicated process of a divorce. Child custody is a complex issue, but Illinois parents can successfully reach an agreement that both benefits the children and protects parental rights.

The most important aspect of any child custody agreement is the best interests of the child. There are many factors that should be considered, including any special needs of a child, a visitation schedule and, in some cases, paternity. Many of these issues can be resolved through mediation or negotiation, ultimately giving a parent more control over the final outcome.

No one knows a child like his or her parent. Despite the court’s intentions to protect the best interests of the child, parents are intimate with what will work best for their family. Resolving disputes out of court can save Illinois families time and money. However, not every dispute can be resolved in this way. If it becomes necessary to litigate, a parent has the right to pursue his or her preferred outcome with the help of a lawyer.
