New Changes to Illinois Divorce and Family Law

Effective January 1, 2016, the term "parental responsibility" will be used in place of the term "custody."  Moreover, the term "parenting time" will be used in place of the term "visitation" with respect to time during which a parent is responsible for exercising caretaking functions and non-significant decision-making responsibilities regarding the child.

Parenting Plans:

A Parenting Plan is utilized when both parents have agreed that one parent will have sole parental responsibilities of the minor child or children. A Parenting Plan specifies, among other things, that one parent will be responsible for the personal care of the minor child or children and for the significant decisions, such as education, extracurricular activities, health care, and religious training. In addition, a Parenting Plan provides the parenting time schedule. For more information regarding the allocation judgment or parenting plan, see Parental Responsibility/Child Custody, as well as allegations of parental unfitness. For more information concerning modification of an allocation judgment or parenting plan, see Modification. And, for more information regarding enforcement of an allocation judgment or parenting plan, see Enforcement or Contempt.

Because of the complexity and the significant legal implications involved in the preparation and the drafting of a proposed Parenting Plan, it is prudent to seek the counsel of a dedicated matrimonial and family law attorney.
