Knowledgeable Representation to Guide You Through Child Custody Proceedings

If you are dealing with issues regarding your children after a divorce, or facing a potentially contentious battle concerning child custody, it is important to be aware of recent changes regarding the laws governing these matters. Recent modifications to the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) impact child custody matters in particular, by changing both the language as well as the procedures for determining custody and visitation rights. Under the new system, child custody is referred to as ‘division of parental responsibilities’ and instead of awarding visitation, the court oversees development of parenting plans, allocating both time spent with the children as well as legal rights when it comes to making decisions about matters concerning the overall health, well-being, and development of the children. While these changes were enacted with an eye toward obtaining the best possible outcome for children involved with these cases, and encouraging parental involvement, it is vitally important to have a strong legal advocate on your side to ensure the best interests of your children are being served. At the SAM LAW OFFICE, LLC, Attorney Susan A. Marks and her associate attorneys oversee each case, and we have successfully represented hundreds of parents in these types of matters. Our attorneys are well-respected members of the legal community throughout the area, representing clients throughout Cook, Dupage, McHenry and Lake Counties Illinois.
