We at Heffernan Law will listen. We will help you identify and assess your and your spouses' income, assets, debts and what arrangements are in your children's best interest.

In 2016, Illinois enacted legislation that eliminated the use of the terms "custody" and "visitation." Parental responsibility (formerly custody) is the allocation of the decision making authority for the child to one or both parents. Parties may agree to the allocation of the responsilibities or the court will decide if there is not an agreement of the parties.

Parenting time (formerly visitation) is the time each parent spends with the child. This time includes weekends, weekdays, holidays and summer.
