Family law is an expansive and important branch of the law that addresses nearly any topic that has to do with marriage, divorce, and/or shared children. Issues that are common to family law cases include
Discussing your family law concern with a dedicated family law attorney can help.
Child custody concerns are very common to family law. In Illinois, legal custody is referred to as parental responsibilities, and it relates to who will be making important decisions on behalf of your shared children moving forward. The kinds of big-picture decisions involved include:
You and your children’s other parent can make these decisions together (one of you may have tie-breaking authority on the matter); one of you may have sole responsibility for making these decisions; or you may divide this decision-making authority according to the type of decisions being made.
Physical custody in Illinois is called parenting time, and it determines how both parents split their time with their shared children. One option is that one of you will become the primary custodial parent, while the other has what amounts to a visitation schedule. Another way to go is by splitting your time more equally (according to whatever schedule makes sense for both of you in your unique situation).
If you and your children’s other parent can negotiate terms that work for you between yourselves (with the skilled legal guidance of your respective family law attorneys), you are free to do so. If you’ve exhausted your negotiation options, however, and are no closer to a resolution, you’ll need the court to intervene on your behalf. The court is always driven by the best interests of the children involved, but if you can keep this important decision-making power between yourselves, it’s generally preferable.
