Child Custody Archives

Child Custody and Covid 19

Cropped Custody Photo.jpgCourts in Illinois Counties are largely closed to the public with some exceptions but that doesn't mean that if the parents have a Child Custody Judgment or Allocation Judgment and Parenting Plan, they can refuse to send their child for parenting time with the other parent without a Court Order.

New Child Custody Bill Proposed for Equal Parenting Time

Once again a bill has been proposed in the Illinois House of Representatives to mandate equal parenting time in Child Custody Cases. The Law would have the court presume that both parents are fit and able to share decision making for their kids and split time with them on a 50/50 basis.

Child Custody and Motherhood on the Run in Illinois

ThinkstockPhotos-949352838.jpgIt's Mother's Day. A time to celebrate but here is a word of warning. The rules governing child custody are changing in Illinois and elsewhere. More and more women are losing custody of their children. This is a very noticeable trend and this blog will attempt to ascerrtain why.

Child Custody and Support Laws. How recent changes affect you!

ThinkstockPhotos-518751523.jpgThe Illinois Legislature recently passed significant changes in Child Custody and Child Support Laws that affect anyone with children going through a divorce or custody battle despite the long standing state budget standoff that just ended.

Alcohol Abuse in Child Custody Cases

I would say that at least 1 and 4 child custody cases I encounter involve alcohol or some other substance abuse. These cases are difficult but they are especially challenging when children are involved. The right to parent is a constitutional right but the children's best interests must be considered and their wellbeing must be protected.
