In Illinois divorce cases, the decision about which parent has custody of a couple’s children is typically based on what is best for the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of the child. The official term for custody under Illinois law is now “parenting time.” The terms “joint custody” and “legal custody” are no longer used by the courts, although many parents still refer to the issue this way.
