Parentage/Parenting Plans — Formally Known As Child Custody
The best way to put your mind at ease to make effective legal decisions regarding what is in the best interests of your child is to work with an experienced and supportive family law attorney.
One of the most emotional aspects of divorce and family law involves child custody disputes. At Scott W. Sheen & Associates, P.C., we sit down with our clients to discuss what options are available to them in a child custody settlement. Illinois courts could award majority of parental decisions, formally known as joint custody or sole custody to either parent based on various factors, but whatever the case may be, the court will make a determination about which parent makes the majority of parental allocation decisions and who the child(ren) reside with.
