Split Custody in Illinois

split custody orders in IllinoisWhen multiple children are involved and one child wants to live with one parent and the other child(ren) want to live with the other.

Split custody is a less common child custody arrangement where children from the same parents may live separately from one another.

Specifically, imagine a couple with two teenage children, a boy, and a girl. In a split custody arrangement, the daughter might spend the majority of her time with her father while the son spends the majority with the mother.

The reasons for this potential split are numerous and include the siblings not getting along, or one sibling not wanting to transfer schools if one spouse is moving.

Courts tend not to favor this type of arrangement unless there are justifiable circumstances and it is truly in the best interest of both children to live apart. With the passage of the new law in 2016, the term “custody” has been thrown out in favor of “parenting responsibilities” and “parenting time”.

In this context, a split custody arrangement would mean that responsibilities and parenting time would be divided differently for each child instead of universally for all of the children.

"This past fall, I filed for divorce. My husband and I were in a situation where neither of us really needed a lawyer to sort things out, so I decided to file pro se. I was concerned about making a mistake in the paperwork and delaying the final separation, so I called SterlingLawyers.com. Attorney Festerling agreed to work w/me on a "consult only" basis, meaning she would answer my questions and review my documents, charging only for the time spent on those things. There would be no big legal fees incurred for her presence in court or for her time in filling out documents that I was capable of handling myself. She was kind and helpful, and our case went through without a hitch. The overall outlay was very reasonable. I was very happy with the help I received and felt confident going to the court date, knowing all our ducks were in a row. It was as good as an experience like this can be."
