Child Custody

Child Custody Law in Illinois

Paternity Lawyer Janice L. Berman

The issue of child custody brings out some of the worst in people who are getting divorced. The question to ask yourself is this:

Do I really want a complete stranger deciding where my children will live?

New Illinois law
mandates that all child
custody matters must
be resolved within 18-
months.

At the Law Offices of Janice L. Berman, we represent the interest of mothers, fathers, and sometimes the children themselves in child custody matters throughout the suburbs.

We represent clients seeking primary custody and joint custody, and in related family law matters such as:

  • Psychological evaluation referrals (604B process)
  • Child custody modifications
  • Visitation rights and schedules
  • Parenting plan
  • Paternity testing

The fact that residential custody of minor children is usually awarded to the children's primary caretaker is an important consideration for fathers. If you are a father and want to seek primary custody of your children, start assuming these responsibilities as much as possible now.
