Protecting Your Parental Rights

Child custody issues are often the most emotional and volatile part of a divorce. A contentious or lengthy custody battle can have significant harmful effects on everyone involved, especially the children.

At Reilly Law P.C., we are sensitive to the complex family relationships that are involved when determining a child custody arrangement and parenting plan. Whenever possible, we use negotiation and mediation to create workable custody agreements that provide parents and children with a sense of security and peace. However, if the opposing party refuses to behave reasonably, we are fully prepared to go to trial to protect your parental rights and the best interests of your children.

We serve clients in Metro East and throughout southern Illinois.

Advocating For Your Child’s Best Interests

Illinois courts determine child custody based upon the best interests of the child. In most families, both parents want what is in the best interests of their child, but a definition of those best interests may differ from one parent to the other.

At Reilly Law P.C., we are experienced in all areas of custody litigation, including claims of parental alienation, substance abuse or domestic violence. With more than 30 years of combined experience, our attorneys have the skills and resources to handle even the most complex child custody disputes. We regularly counsel and advocate for clients in the following areas:

  • Allocation of Parental Responsibilities and Parenting Time (formerly known as custody and visitation)

  • Sole custody and visitation 

  • Domestic violence and orders for protection

  • Substance abuse

  • Claims of parental alienation 

  • Modifications to existing custody arrangements

  • Child removal or relocation 

  • Enforcement of existing court orders
