Looking Out For Your Child’s Best Interests. That’s What Child Custody Is All About.
Child custody disputes are usually the most difficult type of family law conflict that happen in direct proportion to divorce. Illinois courts will always award custody based on what it believes to be in the child’s best interests. In the past, mothers would often be awarded custody based on the assumption that the child would receive a more nurturing environment from their mother. Today, however, a custody determination is based on the relationship a child has to each parent.
