DuPage County Child Custody Attorneys
Child custody issues, now known as the allocation of parental responsibilities in Illinois, are often the most contested matters in a divorce because they involve the most precious commodity—children. Child custody can also have a significant financial impact as the parent with less parenting time typically has to pay the child support to the other parent. At the Law Offices of Kenny & Kenny, we help clients resolve child custody and visitation (parenting time) matters in divorce and create effective parenting plans that work in the best interest of both children and parents. We also help unmarried parents make parenting arrangements following paternity actions.
Negotiating and Litigating Matters of Parental Responsibilities
Child custody agreements and parenting plans are best handled out of court with both parents working together cooperatively. This allows parents to create arrangements that are tailored to the specific needs of their family and helps perpetuate a healthy parenting environment going forward. It is not always possible for parents to reach an agreement outside of court, however. When a child-related dispute cannot be negotiated, litigation becomes necessary. Our attorneys are skilled trial attorneys who know how to effectively advocate on behalf of our clients and their children in family court. We work closely with you to understand your goals and help achieve them.
