Child Custody – Family Law – Southern Illinois Attorney

Children are the most precious thing in our lives. Unfortunately, too often, the action of the adults can have a huge
impact on children. In our peaceful Western world, divorce is the single most painful thing that many children go through. The long-term effects of divorce can be devastating and can affect a child’s life for decades. Even more when a child has issues from birth, such as birth defects, which can be sometimes caused by external sources, is when the use of birth defect attorneys could be essential for this purpose.

A great divorce attorney works to find quick, equitable solutions to care for the children. The way that I do it is to speak to my client and work with the other parent’s attorney closely to meet the children’s needs as rapidly as possible. Assets and other considerations aren’t as important as doing everything we can to protect children.

They are several items that need to be considered:

  • Custody
  • Visitation
  • Child support
  • School and sports permissions
  • Vacations
  • Holidays

All of these things affect how the child sees the world and how they see themselves.
