Protecting children: at the heart of many family law outcomes

9967830_S.jpgThere is an overriding and oft-used mantra that permeates many family law concerns in Illinois and Missouri, as well as throughout the rest of the country, and it is this: "the best interests of the child."

That standard is what centrally guides judges in their divorce-related and other family concerns where children are involved.

The guideline is at once understandable and appreciated, given the singular innocence and vulnerabilities of children in any process that is bringing about material change in their lives.

Divorce is obviously a case in point, with many matters that require resolution -- often through judicial intervention -- being closely tied to outcomes that must necessarily consider factors addressing the needs of youngsters involved.

That essentially means looking at the family law process through the filtered eyes of a child.

And there can be a lot to consider in any given divorce case, owing to the unique characteristics of every marital dissolution. Divorce can indeed be many things, but there is certainly one thing it is not: a cookie-cutter process.

Child custody considerations obviously loom large in many cases, with parenting plans and visitation rights often being of critical importance and spelled out in detail in divorce decrees.

Spousal maintenance (alimony) and child support can also be uppercase divorce concerns, as can be outcomes regarding property division.

Our law firm has long-tenured and proven experience dealing effectively with the wide universe of family law concerns that centrally involve children. We readily emphasize with our clients and take great pride in the work we do, especially when it is focused on promoting children's best interests.

For those and other reasons, we invite readers who are interested in the interplay between family law and children's concerns to visit our website's Child Custody practice page and to contact our law firm for relevant information.
