Divorce Cases in the Lincoln Park Area

The Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) governs divorce cases in Illinois, including those throughout Cook County. Our firm commonly helps clients with many different matters arising out of divorce, such as:

  • Complex property division in a high net worth divorce;
  • Dissolution of a long-term marriage;
  • Equitable distribution and the classification of marital property;
  • Determining whether spousal maintenance is appropriate;
  • Negotiating marital property settlements;
  • Creating a parenting plan language;
  • Advocating for a parent in the allocation of parental responsibilities;
  • Calculating child support under the income shares model; and
  • Assisting with modifications related to divorce orders, including spousal maintenance, child custody, and child support.

Allocation of Parental Responsibilities in Lincoln Park

Under the IMDMA, language about child custody has been changed to the “allocation of parental responsibilities.” Parental responsibilities include both parenting time and caretaking functions for the child (known previously as physical custody), and important decision-making functions concerning the child’s upbringing and well-being (known previously as legal custody).

If parents can come to an agreement about how parental responsibilities should be allocated, they can create what is known as a parenting plan. If the judge determines that the parenting plan is in the best interests of the child, then the parenting plan can take effect instead of an allocation judgment. If parents cannot agree, then the court will decide what is in the best interests of the child and will issue an allocation judgment.

The Lincoln Park family lawyers at our firm can answer any questions you might have about the allocations of parental responsibilities, child support, and other matters related to minor children.
