It is not infrequent for us to be contacted by parents of a child who have never married. Some times they wish to go their separate ways and some times there are disputes regarding custody, visitation and child support. Some times a parent has passed away or is incarcerated. Some times grandparents are concerned about the safety and welfare of their grandchildren. Some times there are concerns regarding Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and investigations, representation, handling, hearings and appeals, and ramifications. We have decades of experience handling these types of issues whether complicated, inter-generational, or multi-layered.
