How to legally establish paternity as a father in Illinois

Becoming a father is one of the most exciting experiences a man can have. Unfortunately, interpersonal relationships are often very complicated and can make the joys of fatherhood seem unattainable. This is particularly true for fathers who are not married to the mother of their children.

A lack of familiarity with their legal rights combined with a desire to avoid conflict with the mother can impact how much time fathers spend with their children or even their legal right to visit. Don't let a lack of information or fear about interpersonal drama prevent you from spending time with your child.

What are the standard practices for custody in divorce?

A lot of things in your life change during a divorce, including your relationship with your children. If you are like many parents in Illinois, you may have suffered silently through an unhappy marriage for many years before finally filing for divorce. You probably did that to save your children the turmoil of a divorce.

It's also very common, especially for fathers, worried about the outcome of child custody proceedings when considering divorce. Once you understand the way Illinois law works, you'll have an idea of how custody proceedings will likely develop in your case.
