If you and your ex share children, visitation is almost certainly a primary concern. When it comes to parental responsibilities and parenting time – which guides your visitation schedule – the State of Illinois focuses on maximizing the amount of time each parent has with the children and on ensuring that the best interests of the involved children are well supported. If you are facing a legal concern related to visitation, don’t wait to consult with an experienced visitation lawyer in Schaumburg.
If you and your ex are able to negotiate a parenting time schedule between yourselves that works for both of you, you can expect the court to go along with this proposed schedule. Your negotiations can include the professional legal guidance of your respective divorce attorneys or a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as mediation. Mediation involves a professional mediator – who is a neutral party in the matter – helping both sides (along with your respective divorce attorneys) explore your best visitation schedule options. If you are ultimately unable to resolve the matter through mediation, you’ll require the court’s assistance.
While the court believes that it is in the best interest of children to spend time and bond with both parents, this does not mean that it takes a 50/50 approach in every visitation determination. In fact, a wide range of best interest variables plays a role in these decisions, including:
Because the court generally considers less disruption preferable to more for children experiencing divorce, it may be inclined to maintain the Status quo (if it is working well) to the degree possible.
