I hired Margaret Bennett to handle my custody matter. She was aggressive, organized, eloquent in court and I won my case. - Sam
Your children’s best interests are the dominant factor in Illinois courts’ child custody and parenting decisions. Demonstrating how the best interest standard applies to your case requires both a thorough understanding of the law and extensive, thoughtful preparation to apply the law to your circumstances.
The Bennett Law Firm, LLC can help secure decisions that help you maintain your strong relationship with your children while serving their best interests.
Assuming a court will decide custody in your favor because of your history, income or parenting skills is speculative. Assembling evidence that supports your parenting position is critical.
At the Bennett Law Firm, LLC, we have successfully secured the rights of both mothers and fathers in custody matters. We have helped divorcing parents win custody, arrange joint custody or work out arrangements involving shared parenting time when parents feel they can cooperate to promote their children's best interests. On the other hand, if a proposed parenting time schedule is not in your children’s best interest, rest assured we will take every step necessary to remedy that situation.
Our attorneys will explain the steps in this complex process, represent your interests aggressively and present the most effective evidence regarding your role in your children’s lives.
The risk of minimizing your role in your children’s daily lives can be one of the most difficult and emotional aspects of a divorce. This is especially true when your spouse makes untrue allegations about your parenting skills or attempts to use the children to gain leverage.
If you have grave concerns about the other parent’s behavior in this regard, please call us today. We have won many judgments in the best interests of child safety and development. Common concerns about the other parent include:
We enhance your peace of mind with highly detailed parenting plans that outline clear limits for both parties. Plans that can be thoroughly relied upon and reduce the chance of future litigation and cost.
Whether you’re exploring different scenarios or have already determined child custody and a parenting time arrangement, we encourage you to contact us.
