When deciding to get a divorce in Illinois, there will undoubtedly be many questions and concerns that people will have. Such issues as allocation of parental responsibilities, formerly known as child custody, child support, alimony, how the division of marital assets will be handled and more will all come to the forefront. To ensure that every aspect of the case is addressed, it is imperative to have legal assistance from an experienced divorce attorney from the start.

Parents in Illinois who part ways as a couple and share a child will undoubtedly be aware of the need for some form of child custody agreement. This is a strategy to address parental responsibilities, give the child an idea as to how the situation will play out as they move forward and lets the parents know they will need to come to an agreement on parenting time and other important issues. However, legal changes can force parents and children to adapt.
