While divorce is never easy, splitting up with a spouse can be especially hard for parents who are unable to spend enough time with their children (or even see them at all). At Johnson & Johnson, Attorneys at Law, our firm is committed to helping our clients who are going through this in Belleville, and other parts of Illinois. If you are dealing with child custody or visitation issues and are unsure of your parental rights, figuring out the best approach right away is very important.
When it comes to child custody matters, there are a number of considerations that parents may have to take into account. For example, some parents are unable to secure parenting time and visit their child, while some parents fight over where a child will spend a majority of his or her time. Furthermore, there are many concerns parents may have, such as the religious influences in a child's life, the school they attend and the medical care they receive, to name a few. Sometimes, parents disagree on these issues, which can lead to a contentious courtroom battle. If possible, it may be beneficial for parents who have disagreements to attempt to resolve these matters out of the courtroom.
When it comes to child custody and visitation, parents should always make the best interests of their child a top priority. If you believe that your rights as a parent have been violated, you should not hesitate to address the situation. On our child custody page, additional material is provided that may be useful for those whose parental rights have been violated.
