If you have minor children, which in Illinois is usually defined as children who are less than 18 years old or have not graduated from high school, "Visitation" or "Parenting Time" as it is unofficially referred to, is another decision that you will need to consider. Visitation is generally the non-custodial parent's time with his or her children. Visitation may be affected by many factors, including the proximity of the parents' homes to each other after the divorce, the parents' works schedules, their prior involvement with the children and the children's needs and activities. Visitation is the actual schedule or amount of time each parent spends with their child. The underlying presumption is that children need both parents, even after a divorce, unless certain facts exist that would make such contact harmful for the children. The fact that someone made a lousy spouse, may, but does not necessarily mean, that parent should not spend time with the children. Families and their interrelationships are unique and can be complex. We will work with you to present parenting time schedules and options that are structured to meet your families' needs and circumstances. What works for one family, will not necessarily work for another.
