On January 1, 2016 a new divorce law went into effect in the State of Illinois that modified some commonly used terms in family law and divorces. That Law is “Allocation of Parental Responsibilities”. In family law cases when the parties are not married, but have minor children as a result of their relationship, our firm is dedicated to represent our client (either the birth mother or birth father) while simultaneously keeping the best interests of the children in mind.
For the sake of the minor children involved, we counsel our clients to reach a fair and amicable settlement. If the parties cannot agree on a parenting plan, then the Court can use its discretion to make a decision based upon the best interest of the child or children.
