DuPage County Parenting Plan Lawyers
A parenting plan is created to foster the growth and development of children after the parents no longer live together. An effective parenting plan takes into account the children, both parents and any significant factors such as income discrepancy and location. It is our goal to protect the best interests of your children while protecting your rights as a parent.
At Andrew Cores Family Law Group, our DuPage County parenting plan attorneys have guided several clients through the creation of even the most complex plans. We are skilled at investigating all aspects of a family's dynamics and meshing that information with the financial situation of each parent. It is our goal to help you move through this process in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.
What Goes Into a Parenting Plan?
An accurate and effective parenting plan must take into account the needs of all parties involved and anticipate issues that have not even arisen yet. A detailed parenting plan can lay the groundwork to resolve disputes that may involve the growth and maturity of the child. According to the recently-updated law in Illinois, a parenting plan must be filed with the court within 120 days of beginning a proceeding for the allocation of parental responsibilities. The parenting plan will encompass factors such as:
- Parental responsibilities and living arrangements
- Parenting time or visitation
- Holiday schedules
- Decision-making responsibilities with regard to education, medical care and religion
A skilled lawyer will ensure you address every topic possible, including exchange locations, transportation costs and who claims the child on income tax forms. Contact our firm for skilled, experienced representation.
