What Is Best for Your Child?
Our primary concern as child custody attorneys is seeking a resolution for the situation that is in your child’s best interests. If you are our client, we will assist you in finding the right situation for the custody of your child. The court may consider a number of factors in this regard, including:
- Your wishes and the wishes of your spouse
- The wishes of the child
- The interaction and interrelationship of the child with you and your spouse, siblings and other family members
- The child’s adjustment to his home, school and community
- The mental and physical health of all family members
- The possibility of physical violence by the child’s potential custodian
- The occurrence of ongoing abuse of the child or someone else in the family
- Your desire to facilitate and encourage continuing relationship between the other parent and your child
Know Your Legal Options
As a parent, you have some legal rights as to which judge will decide your child custody case. Because of my experience in local courts, we can advise you about how that right can affect your concerns in numerous child custody issues, including:
- Joint custody
- Paternity tests
- Removal of children to another state or location
- Post-decree modifications
Knowledge of Illinois divorce and child custody law is extremely important in these cases. We can assist you in protecting your rights and your child’s welfare.
