What is a judge's role in child-custody cases?

In an ideal world, when Illinois parents split it up, they can make a responsible, mutually beneficial decision about who should get the kids and to what extent. But that consensus is seldom easy to reach. The couple care about their kids and want to spend time with them. At the same time, the couple is usually splitting because of serious, often emotional problems. Together, each parent's desire to have the kids, and their problems with each other, make it difficult for them to resolve child custody on their own.

How does an Illinois court determine custody?

When Illinois parents split, one of the key issues is child custody. But figuring out who will get custody of the child is sometimes confusing. Many believe that the courts favor mothers, but the reality is that courts favor the best interests of the child. Sometimes that interest means the child will live with the mother, other times with the father.
