Protecting Your Relationship With Your Child
In Illinois, there is no automatic presumption by the court that mothers are better than fathers at raising children. Child custody is determined by what is in the best interest of the child, and most often, this means spending time with both parents. We will argue for you to be awarded sufficient time with your child.
In cases involving unmarried parents, legal paternity must be resolved before custody proceedings can begin and before either party has rights or obligations. We understand that paternity cases can involve some very sensitive issues. To protect the welfare of the child, however, it is best to determine paternity. Until paternity is established, the child has no right to child support and the father has no right to custody. We can represent mothers or fathers in paternity suits.
