allocation of parenting rights and responsibilities Archives

Paternity and fathers' rights

Illinois courts have historically sided with mothers as primary caregivers for children. However, more significance is beginning to be placed on the father's importance in children's lives, as well as their rights and responsibilities. It has been proven by multiple studies over the years that children who have involved fathers further excel academically and in language and social development.

Illinois child custody for unmarried parents

An unwed father in Illinois is not automatically presumed to be the biological father of a child, which can lead to more complicated determinations of child custody and parental rights. There are a few ways paternity can be recognized, and it must be accomplished before a court may recognize custody or visitation rights.

Understanding how custody of children is shared in Illinois

Concerns about child custody, visitation and a parenting plan can be the most significant concerns couples face during a divorce. Child custody disputes are not a good thing for children or their parents, which is why the family law process can help parents resolve concerns over how they will co-parent and share custody.

How are parenting rights and responsibilities allocated?

There are several different options for child custody, which will determine how the parenting rights and responsibilities for the child are allocated. If you have questions about the different types of child custody, you may not be alone.
