Child custody conflict can spoil vacations for all

When summer vacation comes around every year, many divorced and separated parents in Illinois have problems keeping to court-ordered parenting arrangements. However, with advance planning, parents can make the most out of summer and other breaks with their children. Court child custody orders cannot be changed instantly, but help is available to reach agreements that suit all parties.

No one needs to deal with a divorce without legal guidance

Ending a marriage is a traumatic experience for anyone, and with all the do's and don'ts along with advice from friends and family, online sources and others who mean well, the process can be overwhelming. For that reason, many people in Illinois who are in the throes of divorce secure the services of an experienced family law attorney. Although many family law matters can be handled without a lawyer, having legal counsel's support has several advantages.

Reasons for seeking child support modification

Parents in Illinois who separate or divorce remain responsible for the care and support of their children. Although the court will order child support at a level that will take care of the best interests of the child, life goes on, and circumstances change. The family court recognizes that changes can be for the better or worse, and adequately motivated petitions for modifications might be approved.

Parenting time negotiations can be challenging

When Illinois couples decide to separate or file for divorce, they will have to make challenging decisions, especially if they have children. While each spouse will want to make sure he or she gets a fair share of the property, most parents want to ensure that they each get to spend as much as possible time with the children. The way to work that out is by negotiating a workable parenting plan that will reflect the best interests of the child rather than those of the parents.
