Allocation of parental responsibility issues may be the most important issue in a divorce case and should not be taken lightly.

With over 25 years of experience in Illinois Child Custody matters, George Skuros can advise you to quickly do what is needed during a custody battle to ensure you are there for your loved ones.

It is important to know that in Illinois, there are two types of child custody: legal custody and physical custody.

Legal custody concerns the right to make and be involved in major decisions concerning the health care, education and religion and extracurricular activities of your child or children.

Shared responsibility means that both parents have equal decision-making powers.

Sole custody or full custody means that one parent has the decision-making process and he or she does not need to consult the other parent when making these major decisions.

Physical custody is where the child lives. One parent can have sole physical custody or in some cases the parties can share joint physical custody. If one parent has sole physical custody, then the other parent will have visitation according to a schedule that is negotiated between the parents and their attorneys.
