Steps in filing for child support

42500125_S.jpgThere are several steps a parent in Illinois may need to go through to file for child support. A mother who was not married to the child's father at the time of the child's birth may need to establish paternity. If the mother was married to someone else at the time, that person may be listed as the father.

Custody decisions involving very young children

71234126_S.jpgThe guiding principle behind any child custody decision is the best interests of the child. Increasingly, Illinois courts are deciding that shared custody, in which each parent spends at least 35% of the time with the child, is in his or her best interest. However, there may still be some lingering reluctance on the part of the courts to award shared custody of very young children. Where the children are younger than 5, courts may be more likely to grant sole custody to the mother. 

Authorities allege three sisters plotted to kill child's father

86168506_S.jpgMatters involving child custody in Bloomington can easily become contentious. Parents cannot be faulted for loving their children, yet at the same time, their motives for not wanting their children's other parents to have regular access to them can often come under question. One might reasonably wonder if they have their children's best interests in mind, or are rather allowing their own personal feelings to drive their decisions. It is understandable that parents feel a great deal of emotion (both good and bad) when it comes to custody matters, but the hope is that such emotion will remain under control and not lead to potentially dangerous actions.
