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.

What are child custody and visitation and how do they differ?


Many Illinois residents do not understand the child custody process and how time with a child is allotted. That's no surprise -- the process and the terminology can be misleading.

How does relocation impact child custody?


For many Illinoisans, child custody is tough enough when both parents live near each other. But what happens when one parent wants to move hundreds of miles away or even across state lines? The answer (unsurprisingly) is that it depends. It depends on what the noncustodial says; it depends on how far the custodial parent wants to move; it depends on the child's best interest. Below are three questions and answers that shed some light on how these factors influence the outcome.

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.
