Joint Child Custody/Allocation Of Parental Responsibilities

In most cases, children do best when they are raised by both of their parents, even if the parents are no longer in a relationship. As a parent, you naturally want what is best for your children, and joint allocation of parental responsibilities may be your best option. To work out the best possible child custody plan, you need the help of an experienced family law attorney.

Located in Vernon Hills, Illinois, Gauthier Family Law is a family law firm with clients in McHenry County, Lake County and the surrounding communities. Our lead attorney, Michael Gauthier, has practiced family law in Northern Illinois for more than 10 years. He has helped hundreds of parents with their allocation of parental responsibilities issues.

How Does Joint Custody Work?

Joint child custody has the advantage of allowing each parent to continue to help raise the children after divorce or the end of the relationship with the co-parent. It also provides stability and continuity for the kids. But it requires parents who are fit to raise children and can work together with the co-parent for years to come.

As your lawyer, Michael Gauthier will discuss your child custody options and help you determine if joint custody is appropriate for you and your children. His first priority will be your children’s best interests. Our firm will make sure your parental rights are respected in the final allocation of parental responsibilities order.
