Posted by Erin Birt | Jan 02, 2014 | 0Comments

A new Illinois law, concerning the first right of refusal for parenting time, will have an effect on parenting with a joint custody arrangement.  Effective January 1, 2014, if the court awards joint custody, a parent who is unable to care for the child or children must offer parenting time to the other parent prior to finding alternate care or paying for a babysitter. Read more here about the new law 750 ILCS 5/603.2. This post highlights the New Illinois Family Law Effects Joint Custody Parenting, but contact us for updates and how this effects your family law case.
