If you are facing a legal parenting concern, you never want to risk your parental rights or relationship with your child. Because your rights as a parent are paramount, working closely with an experienced child custody lawyer in Rolling Meadows is always in your best interest.
The State of Illinois addresses child custody as parental responsibilities (what you may think of as legal custody) and parenting time (what you may think of as physical custody). These parental responsibilities focus on the primary parental concern of making critical decisions on behalf of our children, including those related to the following:
These are important concerns that you and your children’s other parent can address in any of the following ways:
An important point to make here is that, in emergency situations, whoever is readily available is called upon to make the necessary decisions. Further, those less-pressing parenting decisions that need to be made quite regularly are the responsibility of the parent who is at hand.
Parenting time determines the visitation schedule by which you and your ex will split your time with your shared children, and it is naturally a critical concern. When it comes to parenting time, your options include one of you having the children for the majority of overnights while the other has a visitation schedule. Alternatively, you and your ex can divide your parenting time more evenly.
If you are able to work the matter out between the two of you, you won’t need the court’s intervention and can devise whatever kind of schedule makes sense for you and your children. If not, however, the court will very likely assign one of its standard parenting time schedules. When the court addresses parenting issues, the best interests of the children involved always guide its decisions.
