Illinois Child Custody Lawyers
We Protect Clients’ Rights to Visit Their Children
One of the most sacred rights under Illinois law is
the right to spend time with your child. This is so strong that even incarcerated prisoners get to see their children.
Parents who seriously endanger their children are, nevertheless, eligible
for supervised visitation. Meanwhile, parents who do not seriously endanger
their children will not have their visitation limited or supervised.
Visitation in Illinois Is a Right, Not a Privilege
As society and the role of fathers has changed, men have become more involved
in domestic life and the idea of parenting time has evolved. This means
that the non-custodial parent is more than a visitor. Children need both
parents and they need them both to perform the duties of parents.
When you are going through a
divorce it is important to assert your rights, both for your own benefit and for
that of your children. This includes:
- Agreeing on parenting time
- Figuring out when your children will visit and at what place
- Keeping contact with your ex-spouse civil when around your children
- Settling disputes so your children do not suffer
