Child Custody

Parenting Plan replaces “Child Custody” language

The Illinois Parentage Act of 1984 was replaced by the Illinois Parentage Act of 2016. The term “Custody” is no longer used.
The Parenting Plan spells out Parental Responsibility. Part of that Parenting Plan covers how the parents allocate responsibility for the child’s presence.

We can explain the terminology to you in more detail and assist you in developing the parenting plan that would be best for your child or children. Contact us at (312) 558-9100.
