Establishing a Workable Visitation Schedule

Are you currently in the middle of a divorce or caught up in a child custody battle? Child custody is often a contested issue in divorce and legal separation cases, especially in contested divorces. If you are afraid that your spouse may try to take your child away or that you will not be granted the visitation schedule you are hoping for, an attorney may be able to assist you. Retaining the services of a Chicago family law lawyer may greatly help you to avoid the problems frequently associated with child custody battles.

Family Law Representation in Illinois

At the Law Offices of Gemma B. Dixon, we work with you to put together a case for your child custody preferences. Whether you are concerned about legal custody, physical custody, or both, we are here to assist you. We know that you may be feeling stressed out or upset about the situation you are facing, but it is important to keep the best interest of your child at the forefront of the issue. While we are here to provide you with legal representation in all matters in and out of court, we recommend that you avoid putting your child through litigation.

When making a decision about child custody, the court often considers the following factors:

  • The current position and income of each parent
  • The distance between the parents' homes
  • The age of the child or children
  • The preference of the child or children
  • The specific needs of the child or children
