Parenting concerns are often one of the most challenging terms of divorce, and they can also arise outside of divorce in the form of post-decree modifications or in relation to parents who were never married. If you are facing a parenting concern, one of the most important steps you can take to help protect your parental rights and resolve the matter favorably is reaching out to an experienced custody attorney in Rolling Meadows early in the process.
In an Illinois divorce, child custody is referred to as parental responsibilities (decision-making) and parenting time (physical time with your child). When Illinois courts make decisions related to parenting, they always put the best interests of the involved children at the forefront.

Parenting time sets the schedule by which you and your ex will divide your time with your children. If you are able to come to an agreement between yourselves, your scheduling options are basically unlimited. If not, however, the court is very likely to assign you one of its standard parenting time schedules.
