Lombard, IL Attorneys for Allocation of Parental Responsibilities

Child Custody Lawyers Serving Arlington Heights, DuPage County, and the Northwest Suburbs

Lombard Child Custody Attorneys

There is nothing more important than family. At A. Traub & Associates, we take pride in helping both mothers and fathers develop parenting plans and custody arrangements for their children in the wake of a divorce, separation, or breakup. We also know that, as time goes by, these arrangements will need to be reviewed and amended to meet the ever-changing needs of children and parents.

Arlington Heights Attorneys Who Understand the Updated Laws

When you are looking for a lawyer to help with your child-related legal matters, you want a team that you can trust to know the law fully. Our team of experienced family law attorneys works hard to remain up-to-date on changes to Illinois statutes, especially those that address family law concerns.

Recently, major updates were made to Illinois laws, particularly as they pertain to divorce and child custody. Thanks to these changes, parents will no longer be granted sole or just custody of their child. Instead, parents are expected to work together in developing a parenting plan that allocates parental responsibilities between them. This process keeps both parents more closely involved with their children and is intended to help reduce much of the bitterness traditionally associated with child custody battles.

Illinois Advocates for Parenting Time and Visitation

The updated law also addressed parental visitation, which is now known as parenting time. Each parent is presumed to have reasonable rights of parenting time with his or child, which should also be included in the parenting plan. If you believe that you deserve more parenting time than you currently have, or if the other parent is keeping you from seeing your child, our attorneys can help you protect your rights. We can also assist you in keeping your child safe through parenting time limitations when you believe that the other parent presents a danger your child.

Modifying an Existing Child Custody Order

If you have been divorced for some time and have a custody order or arrangement already in effect, it will eventually need to be reviewed to be sure it continues to meet your family's needs. The new law suggests that an existing sole custody or joint custody arrangement could be replaced with a more fluid allocation of parental responsibilities. Before you begin the modification process, we can help you understand the steps you will need to take to help keep your child's best interest as your top priority.
