Illinois Custody

Laws current as of
September 27, 2021


This page has Illinois-specific information on allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time. There is also a general custody information page, which may be helpful. In our general Custody page, we have information about custody that is not specific to any state. The page includes a section about how to try to transfer your custody case to a new state where you are living so that you can modify the custody order from your new state.
