In Illinois, it is a reality that child custody overwhelmingly goes to the mother.

In respond to the seeming status quo, some fathers are trying to alter the landscape that seems to trample over them to give mothers custody by rote.

Can a parent without decision-making rights get parenting time?

There are numerous factors that go into settling child custody issues in Illinois.

If a parent is confronted with denied parenting time due to a lack of decision-making ability, it is important to have legal advice to deal with the situation.
