Elgin Child Custody Attorneys

Helping Parents Reach Fair Custody Arrangements

One of the hardest things to resolve in any divorce is child custody. It is hard to come to grips with the fact that you may not be able to spend as much time with your children as you would like to. Despite this fact, a family law lawyer can be critical in helping you reach a custody arrangement that is in the best interests of your children. We are the Elgin law firm of Brady & Jensen. We are the oldest and one of the largest law firms in Kane County. In every divorce or custody dispute, our goal is to help our clients maintain a meaningful relationship with their children.

In Illinois, parents can have joint custody of the children or one parent can have sole custody. Joint custody means that each parent shares in the decision-making processes of rearing their children. Sole custody means that only one parent will have this right. When parents have joint custody, it does not mean that each parent will have equal parenting time. More often, one parent will have primary physical custody and the other will have visitation. Even when one parent has sole custody, the other parent will usually have visitation time. In every case, we will provide realistic, sensible counsel to help you understand your rights and achieve your goals.

Finding Solutions That Are in the Child's Best Interests

In child custody disputes, litigation is very rarely the answer. Whenever parents are able to negotiate their differences, it is usually easier for the children and leads to a result that each parent will be more likely to adhere to. Further, in negotiations, parents will have more control over the final outcome than if a judge decides. Our attorneys will strive to reach an agreement that will allow you to build on your relationship with your children.
