Child Custody and Visitation

Children should be protected at all costs. They are one of the greatest assets of a marriage, but divorce can leave them feeling emotionally confused. You know their worth and you need a compassionate attorney who understands your priorities. At the Law Offices of James M. Chesloe of La Grange, Illinois, children come first.

James M. Chesloe will take a personal approach to ensuring that you and your children stay connected by establishing proper custody and visitation arrangements for all concerned parties. In many cases, such matters are settled by mutual agreement without going to court, but if the ruling of a judge is required, our firm will fully represent you and the best interests of your children.

Protecting Your Rights to be With Your Children

Several factors will be considered when seeking equitable child custody and visitation solutions:

  • Primary caregiver of the child(ren)
  • Income and earning potential of both parents
  • The criminal history of both parents
  • Educational opportunities
  • Proximity of residences to school
  • Living arrangements
  • Economic circumstances
  • Extended familial relationships

James M. Chesloe will thoroughly consider every aspect of the child’s quality of life to arrive at an equitable solution. He will fight aggressively to ensure the best possible living arrangements for your children and preserve your right to spend quality time with them.

Helping Clients Understand Different Types of Custody

There are two primary types of custody:

  • Sole Custody – The children live with one parent exclusively and that parent is in charge of major decisions that impact the children.
  • Joint Custody – The children live with one parent exclusively, but both parents have equal decision-making powers.

Your family dynamic will help to determine custodial roles. James M. Chesloe will personally examine the unique circumstances of your family and craft a best-suited approach for all involved. He will consider the relationships and family bonds that have already been created and work diligently to protect them through his legal acumen and attentive service.
