Please note that in Kendall County courts, and courts throughout Illinois, that the term “Child Custody” has been phased out of the law. The courts now refer to “child custody” matters as “allocation of parental responsibilities.”
At the Law Office of Ronald L. Hendrix, P.C., we understand that parents play an important role in the lives of their children. We work diligently with our clients to create parenting plans that protect the parent-child relationship when allocating parental responsibility/child custody.
Our practice is experienced in helping clients allocate parental responsibity/child custody through court entered parenting plans. We work with you to come to an agreement that both protects your rights as a parent as well as helps your children thrive well into the future. Our firm handles issues such as:
Parenting Time: Parenting time, also known as visitation, is the time that the child spends with each parent. We are experieneced in handling a wide variety of parenting situations and needs, and have created parenting plans to cater to many unique situations.
Relocation: When a parent wants to move, it is necessary that the parent obtains permission from the court to alter the parenting plan to reflect changes in circumstances.
Enforcing Parenting Plans: When a parent fails to follow through with their obligations under the allocation of parental responsibility/child custody, it may be necessary to pursue enforcement actions through the court.
Modification of Orders: Circumstances change as your children grow up, and it is often necessary to modify the allocation of parental responsibily to account for these changes. We are experienced in helping clients obtain modi-fications to their parenting plans.
Allocation/Custody Cases for Unmarried Parents: We have extensive experience working out parenting plans and allocation of parental responsibity/child custody between unmarried parents.
Custody Evaluations: Evaluations occur when there are issues of abuse or psychological issues.
Best Interests of the Child
Illinois law focuses on serving the best interests of the child. Courts will look at the facts of each case and consider many factors, including the child’s wishes (if age appropriate), the relationship the child has with each parent, and the child’s home situation.
