Protect Your Child’s Best Interests And Your Parenting Time
You may be a parent heading for divorce, or you may not be married to your child’s other parent and anticipate a separation. Illinois’ laws about parents’ responsibilities apply whether parents are married to each other or not. Like the vast majority of parents, you no doubt want to preserve your right to maintain a nurturing relationship with your child, regardless of a divorce or separation.
First Response Family Law is committed to helping you push for a child custody and parenting time agreement that will do just that.
