DuPage County Parenting Plan Attorneys

Naperville Parenting Plan Attorneys

Lawyers for Negotiating Parenting Agreements in Naperville, Winfield, Carol Stream, and Throughout the Area

As a parent, there are few concerns that are more important than the safety and well-being of your child. Of course, lawmakers and family courts try to address such issues with legislation and reasoned rulings, but no one can truly take the place of a committed parent. At Calabrese Associates, P.C., we recognize that not even a divorce or a breakup should keep you from being an integral part of your child's life. To that end, our compassionate team is ready to help you develop a parenting plan that meets the needs of your children for years to come.

Cooperative Parenting Lawyers

Research from around the world continues to offer convincing evidence that the best scenario for a child following a breakup or divorce most often entails the invested participation of both parents. Cooperative parenting, however, requires more than just parents working together. It involves careful planning, mutual respect, boundaries, and, in many cases, a great deal of compromise. Our attorneys understand the challenges parents face, and assist you in negotiating a strong, cooperative parenting plan.

A Unified Outlook

For more than 20 years, our law firm has been helping clients find amicable solutions to matters of family law whenever possible. We realize that the best resolutions are those that truly reflect the participation of all parties. With a team-oriented approach even among our own attorneys, we know the value of cooperation and negotiated agreements tend to result in increased compliance and fewer problems down the road.

Warrenville Legal Counsel for Parenting Concerns

Illinois law expects all parents involved in a proceeding for the allocation of parental responsibilities (previously known as "child custody") to submit a proposed parenting plan to the court. This plan must include provisions to distribute significant decision-making responsibilities between the parents, as well as establish one parent as the primary residential parent for legal custodial purposes such as public school registration. Your parenting plan must also contain a parenting time (previously known as visitation) schedule, along with an agreed-upon method for resolving issues outside of court such as mediation. There are a number of other statutorily-required elements that your parenting plan must address, and our attorneys will ensure that your plan meets all of the relevant requirements.

Parenting Plan Enforcement in Illinois

Once your parenting plan has been approved by the court, it is entered in as a part of the judgment for the allocation of parental responsibilities. This means that a violation of the plan's provisions can be very serious. Any violation may result in a court action to remedy the situation and penalize the offending party. If the other parent is not complying with his or her responsibilities, we will assist you in taking the steps necessary to protect your child's best interests.
