Representing Parents From All Backgrounds In Custody Cases
Every parent-child relationship is unique and all are equally important. The relationship you build with your child can have a great impact on them for the rest of their life. However, parenting time and custody are not guaranteed. You may have to fight for custody and prove that maintaining a relationship with your child is in their best interests. At Walczak Hernandez, P.C., we have lawyers who can evaluate each factor and make a strategic decision to obtain the best possible outcome for you and your child.
The Difference Between Physical And Legal Custody
There are two types of custody in Illinois. Parents with physical custody live with their child. Parents with legal custody may or may not live with their child but will have the authority to make decisions on the child’s behalf. Parents with legal custody may make important life decisions such as those related to medical treatment, education and religious practices. Parents may have legal custody and not physical custody and vice versa. In addition, parents may have joint physical and legal custody.
