Child Custody Archives

Parental alienation after a divorce

10892151_S.jpgWhen Illinois parents of young children are facing the end of their marriage, one of the more contentious issues is often custody and visitation. Even before the judge has issued an order, there are times where children develop an animosity to one of their parents. This can be for a variety of reasons, but it sometimes is the result of actions or words on the part of the other parent. This is often referred to as "parental alienation", and many psychologists consider it a form of child abuse.

Clear communication could end child custody disputes

39482247_S.jpgIllinois parents who have gone through a divorce often experience tension and differences of opinion when sharing custody or dealing with visitation orders. Common problems include tardy drop off or pick up of children, ignoring parenting duties, withholding information about travel plans or challenging decisions about schooling, religion or health care. Resolution of these problems should follow a series of steps before escalating to court appearances.

Grandparent have limited rights for visitation and custody

42781589_S.jpgDivorce and other life events in Illinois that require legally binding child custody decisions have the potential to be severely traumatizing to the children concerned. Although the best interest of the child and the rights of the parent are the two primary factors to be considered when the court makes its decisions, grandparents have a recognized role in the health and well-being of the child. If it is possible to do so, then the court will protect the rights of the grandparents and work with them to devise arrangements that allow visitation or possibly even custody of the child.

Parenting dispute between Lena Headey and ex-husband

45229538_S.jpgIllinois residents who are fans of the "Game of Thrones" actress Lena Headey might be following her parenting dispute with her former husband Peter Loughran. Reportedly, Headey took their 6-year-old son to England and enrolled him in school there because she was unhappy with the school system in Los Angeles. Headey says she had Loughran's permission.

Shared parenting following a divorce in Illinois

20360301_S (1).jpgWhile divorces can always be difficult, they can be especially complicated if children are involved. In the past, the children would primarily live with one parent while the other parent would have the kids for short periods of time. However, this trend is changing as more courts are becoming aware of the benefits that shared parenting provides for both the children and adults involved.

Unlearning child custody and domestic violence myths

40967390_S.jpgIn Illinois and the rest of the U.S., child custody and domestic violence issues plague a number of families. Reports say that domestic violence could continue to affect a child long after he or she has become an adult. A contributing factor to the occurrence of both of these issues is the persistence of commonly held beliefs in domestic abuse and child custody.

How a zealous legal advocate can help you in child custody proceedings

18788507_S.jpgIn the divorce process, having a zealous advocate can be crucial for achieving the best results. This is particularly true of financial matters such as property division, debt division, tax and retirement issues, and spousal support. In these areas, the role of an advocate is to make sure the court has the information it needs to make a decision that reflects the interests of the parent the advocate is representing.
