Are you stressed about a child custody matter in Illinois?

When it comes to decisions about how to raise one's children, most Illinois parents appreciate being left alone to decide what is best for their offspring. However, in cases that involve questions of child custody, and in matters that involve joint child custody, parents are often forced to make concessions that they may not completely agree with. It may be that you are currently battling with such a situation and you have questions about your legal rights in the matter.

At the Goddard & Malmquist Attorneys & Counselors at Law, we know that your children are the most precious things in the world to you, and we want to support you in your ability to raise them in the fashion that you deem most appropriate. In some cases, when two divorced parents disagree over a child rearing matter, one parent can assert his or her wishes in court and receive a court order to ensure that his or her desires are adhered to by the other parent.

Parental disagreements can take virtually any form, and at the Goddard & Malmquist Attorneys & Counselors at Law, we tend to think we have seen it all, but invariably a new and complicated problem come will before us relating to one of our clients. One common type of child custody matter involves a parent who is concerned about the other parent's drug or alcohol abuse. If it can be shown in court that the other parent's substance abuse is endangering your children, then legal measures can be taken to protect the children.

If you are worried about a child custody concern, it can be an extremely stressful and worrisome situation to be in. Speaking with a family law attorney who can explain your rights and options is the first step toward alleviating this worry and resolving the situation. At the Goddard & Malmquist Attorneys & Counselors at Law, we will listen to your story and happily advise you of the options available.
