Child Custody Attorney Serving Pittsfield Illinois

Whenever a child is involved in a marital dispute, things tend to get complicated. Coming to settlements regarding child custody and child support are the major factors that lead to the complexity of divorce settlements. Both parties have an opportunity to come to an agreement, but if they can’t, then the state of Illinois decides. If this happens, the courts consider what is in the best interest of the child. In addition to child custody, there also is the question of child support, which is decided primarily based on two things: the amount of parenting time each spouse has and the financial stability of both parents.

Michael A. Hankins Attorney at Law understands the importance of parental rights, and we are here to protect those rights. If you are going through a complicated divorce and are looking for a skilled divorce lawyer who knows how to advocate for you and your child’s best interests aggressively, contact our law firm today.
