We listen carefully to you so we can understand your specific circumstances. Then our family law attorneys will clearly explain the laws involved, outline your legal rights and options, and develop a plan to fight on your behalf.

Contact us for representation in all types of custody matters, including:

  • Denial of visitation
  • Modification of court orders
  • Enforcement of child custody orders
  • Paternity testing
  • Move away issues

Our firm helps clients establish a parenting plan as part of a divorce. We also help parents who were never married with paternity and child custody issues. We help fathers establish paternity so they can exercise their parental rights to visitation, and we help mothers establish paternity so that you can receive child support payments.

Joint Custody

Parents typically share joint legal custody. This allows both parents to be involved in decisions about your child’s education, religion, and health care, for example. Physical custody refers to where your child permanently resides. In matters of child custody, the court will decide in favor of whatever is in the best interest of your child. Harter & Schottland attorneys can demonstrate to the court how your position is most beneficial to your child.

To learn more about how the law applies to your specific situation, please contact Harter & Schottland today. We offer a free case evaluation.

From offices in Round Lake Beach, Waukegan and Woodstock, we represent clients throughout Northern Illinois.
