Parental Allocation Responsibility (Formerly Known as Child Custody)
In 2016, the law changed. Illinois no longer uses the term child custody. Child custody is now called parental allocation responsibility, which is decision making. Visitation is now called parenting time, which is the actual physical time each parent is with the child. Decision making is divided into 4 categories: education, health, religion, and extracurricular activities. The court or the parties can agree to one or both of the parents the significant decision-making responsibility for each significant issue affecting the child. The court will look at the family’s past behaviors and patterns to determine which parent should make the different decisions for the child.
Our task as your lawyer is to put your point of view before the court in the best possible way. Boyle Feinberg Sharma, with offices in Chicago and Arlington Heights, has enjoyed great success doing this for loving parents for nearly 30 years.
