Helping Parents Protect Their Rights

The allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time can be extremely difficult. Litigating in court can be excessively time-consuming, very expensive and completely unpredictable.

It makes good sense to attempt to reach agreement on these issues without the need for costly litigation. We can help make that happen.

The attorneys at Goddard & Malmquist have many years of litigation experience, they are both trained as mediators, Fellows of the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois and Guardian ad Litem. Their knowledge and experience can help you reach agreements on the allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time matters that work for you and your spouse and are in the best interest of your children.

We are here to listen, and we are here to help.

Working It Out

Whether through mediation, litigation or collaborative law, we can help you find successful solutions to matters such as:

  • Allocation of parental responsibilities relating to education, medical care and decisions, extracurricular activities, and religion
  • Parenting time
  • Post-decree modification of parental responsibilities and parenting time

As a parent, your children are your most precious asset. We understand how important your children are to you and how important it is that both you and your spouse remain an integral part of your children's lives. Reaching an agreement on how it will happen may be difficult, but it is not impossible.
