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.

Many laws changing to allow joint physical custody

54781187_S (1).jpgIllinois parents who are getting a divorce might want to consider shared physical custody of their children. A number of states are moving toward passing laws that encourage co-parenting rather than giving primary physical custody to just one parent, usually the mother, and ordering visitation for the other parent.

Chris Brown could lose custody of daughter following charges

48207458_S.jpgIllinois residents who have been following singer Chris Brown's custody battle may be interested to learn that, following assault charges that were filed against him in late August, he could potentially lose custody of his daughter. Even if the charges are eventually dropped against the singer, the fact that he was involved in a standoff with authorities could have a negative impact on his child custody situation.

When divorced parents disagree on free time

20637011_S.jpgAfter a divorce, Illinois parents might face disagreements regarding how they raise their children. For example, they might argue about how much time a child should spend on playing video games. One parent might believe that it is a good bonding activity while the other might say the excessive screen time is damaging for the child.

Setback for Nia Guzman in Chris Brown child custody dispute

51595049_S (1).jpgIllinois fans of singer Chris Brown may be aware he has been involved in a custody battle with the mother of his daughter Royalty. Nia Guzman, the child's mother, asked that she be granted full custody of their daughter. She also requested that the child be banned from visiting Brown's mother, regular drug tests for Brown, and that Brown only be allowed supervised visits.

The primary caretaker is favored in custody decisions

27567495_S.jpgSome Illinois parents who go through a divorce are able to reach an agreement about child custody outside of the courtroom. However, many others are unable to settle disputes over physical custody and must rely on the family court system. When a family court judge is making the decision, the judge typically awards custody to the parent who is deemed the child's primary caretaker.

Illiniois dads hold 'Fatherless Day' protest outside courthouse

15039344_S.jpgWith Father's Day taking place last Sunday, we hope that most dads in Illinois enjoyed spending time with their children. However, many fathers do not get to see their kids as often as they would like, because their former spouse has sole physical custody.

Three things to consider before your settlement conference

13044484_S.jpgIf you are considering divorce or are in the midst of a proceeding, it is likely that will be ordered to attend a settlement conference. Similar to mediation, a settlement conference is an opportunity for the parties to sit down and get to the heart of the issues to see if any of them can be resolved.

How parents can get along after divorce

7221800_S.jpgA successful co-parenting relationship may be the furthest thing on your mind as you prepare to get divorced, but it should be. Family court judges in Washington have an expectation of divorcing parents, and those who do not live up to it run the risk of jeopardizing their ongoing relationship with their children.  Even worse, the children may be permanently affected by the ongoing war between parents.
