The marriage dissolution process is one that can be fraught with emotions. Property division can leave you feeling stressed out about your financial future, and so, too, can discussions regarding alimony. However, if you have children, then a significant amount of your focus will be on child custody and visitation arrangements. Although some Illinois and Indiana residents are able to resolve these issues in a fair and amicable way, others find themselves butting heads with their child’s other parent.
When addressing child custody and visitation issues, it is important to remember that a court will base its decision on the best interests of the child. Therefore, if domestic violence, substance abuse or financial strain have an effect on the child’s well-being, then a court may limit or eliminate the amount of time a child can spend in the household where those issues are present. This means that, regardless of which side of the dispute you are on, you need to be prepared to make strong legal arguments to support your position.
