Protecting Your Rights to Visitation with Your Child
Chicago, Schaumburg and Wheaton Child Custody Lawyers
Visitation (or parenting time) agreements formally establish a schedule for children to spend time with parents and grandparents. A thorough agreement will be more effective in minimizing conflicts between parents while ensuring a child maintains a positive relationship with both parents (and extended family).
At the Illinois law office of Anderson & Associates, P.C., our child custody lawyers help clients achieve favorable custody and visitation agreements in negotiations or in Illinois family court. For more than 25 years, we've been providing effective and sensitive legal counsel to help families develop visitation plans that meet the best interest of their child.

Minimizing Visitation Problems
During the highly emotional period surrounding a divorce, or even after the birth of a child outside a marriage, it can be hard for parents to talk with each other. And yet many important decisions need to be made. With the help of an experienced attorney, parents can often arrive at effective visitation agreements to guide daily life and prevent conflicts. When parents are unable to reach agreement, we can take the matter to Illinois family court for a judge to decide.
Handling Problems When they Develop
There are several types of visitation problems that commonly occur:
- A child or a parent's schedule changes, making the existing agreement unworkable
- The parents have an "informal" agreement and when one parent starts breaking that agreement, the other has no legal recourse
- Parents vent their frustration with the other parent by ignoring or abusing their visitation agreement
If you are experiencing a problem with your existing child custody agreement, we can help. We handle modifications of existing visitation agreements and can help with enforcement of court orders so your time with your child is protected.
Grandparents Have Rights, Too
Our law firm defends the rights of grandparents and other family members who have been deprived of positive visiting experiences with a child due to manipulation by a custodial parent. We serve clients in DuPage County, Cook County and throughout Chicagoland.
