Custody / Parental Responsibilities

Allocation of Parental Responsibilities – formerly known as Custody

Nearly 40% of the births in the U.S. today take place outside of marriage.  And with unmarried births increasingly becoming the norm, the Illinois Parentage Act seeks to address the rights of parents and children.

No one is excited about the prospect of retaining counsel for parentage cases, i.e. parenting time or decision-making disputes between unmarried parents.   Deciding who should represent you and your child’s interests is a difficult and daunting decision, and we at Bennett Law understand that making that initial inquiry to an attorney can often be an overwhelming experience.

That’s why from the very first contact with the firm, you are treated with respect and understanding while we get a feel for your particular situation, and explain how we believe we can help you navigate the world of family law.  We will guide you through the pretrial process and advocate for your interests every step of the way, while doing everything possible to make sure your child has zero involvement with the court system.

With over 20 years of experience, we at Bennett Law have the skill, knowledge and understanding to handle even the most litigious and complex family law matter.  We will guide you through the pretrial process and advocate for your interests every step of the way, while doing everything possible to make sure your child has zero involvement with the court system.
