Legal Representation for Child-Related Matters in Kaneville

In Illinois, there are two main elements with regard to parental responsibilities: decision-making authority regarding children's lives and a parenting time arrangement. Major decisions such as choices about the children's education, religious and cultural upbringing, participation in extracurricular activities, and more can be assigned to one parent or shared between parents. Parenting time refers to the number of days that the children will spend with each parent. At Ekker Law, P.C. / Steven B. Ekker, Esq., we believe that when both parents are well-suited to provide a safe, loving environment for children, a shared custody schedule is best.

If parents plan to share custody of children in Illinois, they will be required to draft a parenting agreement or parenting plan. This plan outlines each parent's responsibilities, assigned parenting time, how parents will transport children, and more. A parenting plan also includes directions as to how any future disputes regarding parental responsibilities and parenting time should be handled, such as through mediation.
