Check out my BBB rating at: bbb.org - Search D. Smith - Oak Brook, Illinois CUSTODY -
THERE IS NO LONGER CUSTODY IN ILLINOIS. Effective January 1, 2016 a party can no longer be awarded sole or joint custody of the minor child/children of the parties. Now the Court must enter a Judgment of Allocation of Parental Responsibilities. This is a very long and complex document which addresses which doctors, dentists and counselors the children will see and the place of worship the children will attend. There will be an allocation of parenting time with the children. There are many, many other provisions contained in said judgment which if properly prepared will exceed 15 pages in length and will relate specifically to your case. Now there is an allocation of parental responsibilities between the parties. The parents now have a legal responsibility to the child / children. According to the new law a parent who fails to show up for his parenting time with the child / children may now be found in CRIMINAL CONTEMPT OF COURT., NOW, more than ever, it is imperative that you have a competent attorney representing your interests and make sure that a Judgment of Allocation of Parental Responsibilities is prepared properly and protects your interests.
