Child Custody & Visitation
If you are an Illinois parent who is divorcing — or estranged from — a parent of your child, Prime Law Group can assist you in these and other child-related matters:
- Child custody or parenting time: If parents can't agree on child custody and parenting time arrangements, a judge will decide for them, based on numerous legal factors. Prime Law Group can help you negotiate for custody and parenting time, as well as make your case before a judge.
- Child support: Illinois has adopted a percentage of net income formula whereby the amount of child support payable by the nonresidential parent to the residential parent is determined. Although the statute is very specific both as to how to determine the amount of net income for child support purposes and the percentage applicable depending on the number of minor children. However, in certain instances and on a case-by-case basis a court may "deviate" from those guidelines. Whether you are the payor or the recipient our knowledge and experience can help you to achieve an accurate and correct child support result.
- Relocation: After a divorce, it is common for one of the parties to move to a different city or a different state. If the divorced parties are parents of shared children, however, the move can affect custody and parenting time arrangements. Prime Law Group helps parents obtain necessary permissions to relocate with children in state and out of state, or to prevent a parent from leaving with children, depending upon the situation.
- Modifications of orders: If your financial or personal circumstances change significantly following a divorce, Prime Law Group can help you in modifying court orders relating to child custody, child support, alimony and other obligations. Conversely, he can also assist you if you seek to enforce an existing court order.
