Defend your rights for fatherhood in Illinois

As a father in Illinois, you want what’s best for your child. During a divorce or in a family law case, you might think that you have the odds against you, but the fact is that you have every right to participate in your child’s life. Whether you’re struggling with the thought of losing primary custody or are worried about how a divorce will affect you financially, there is help.

In Illinois, there are some benefits to the system of divorce when children are concerned. For instance, unless the court finds some history of abuse, it’s most likely that the court will presume the cooperation of both parents along with maximum involvement with their child.

That means that joint custody is a possibility for you and your family. In Illinois, the court aims to be gender neutral when deciding outcomes, which can be a major benefit in your favor. This also applies to cases of property division and spousal support; so you won’t have to pay your ex-wife simply because you’re a man or need to have visitation only because your wife gets custody of your children automatically due to gender.

If you’re concerned about your divorce, don’t wait to talk about it with someone who can help. Devising a strong plan of action early on can help you make good choices and react to claims or requests that you don’t want to have happen.
