Children are the most important consideration in a divorce. The parent who handles the children’s care will have a major impact on their health and emotional well-being.

When responsibility for critical decisions involving health, religion and education falls to both parents, it is called joint custody. Sole custody involves one parent having exclusive responsibility for important decisions. In most cases, the parent with sole custody receives child support from the non-custodial parent. Several different custody options are possible. Divorce lawyers Chicago can help assess your needs and those of your children and will do their best to negotiate an appropriate custody arrangement.
