There are many different types of child custody arrangements parents can agree to work out. Regardless of how much time each parent decides to spend with their child, children need to feel loved and nurtured by both parents. Our law firm can provide different legal options for parents who would like to create healthy parenting plans that coincide with their children's daily life.
Deciding on a child custody and visitation schedule is often one of the hardest decisions parents will make when settling their divorce. Courts may require a period of mediation, if child custody and visitation agreements are contested.
Whether one parent has sole legal custody or both parents have joint custody, our law office can help you come to a positive conclusion that will keep your child's best interests at heart.
In Illinois, child support is determined by a number of different factors, but many are in direct relation to income, custody arrangements, and how many children are in a family. Before July 2017, courts calculated child support using a simple percentage of a non-custodial parent's net income, but the law changed on July 1, 2017 and the method of determining child support was redefined. The new law shifted Illinois to an income-sharing model in which a basic support obligation will be determined based on the parents' combined net income, and the amount of this obligation will be allocated between the parents according to the amount that each parent's individual income contributes to the combined income. Courts will also consider the amount of parenting time and parental responsibility that each parent has with their children.
