Glen Ellyn Family Law Attorney for Child Related Issues

Burr Ridge child guardian attorney

Lawyer Assisting Families With Paternity and Orders of Protection in Naperville and Wheaton

Legal issues related to children can be stressful for everyone involved, and they can affect children's relationships with their parents, family members, and others in their community. Whether parents are married, unmarried, separated, or divorced, they will want to ensure that their children's needs and best interests are met, so it is essential to work with a skilled attorney who can help protect the rights of both parents and children.

At Roberts, P.C., we understand the difficulties parents and family members face when addressing child-related legal issues. Attorney Chuck Roberts has more than 30 years of experience in family law, including work as a court-appointed guardian ad litem, and he provides families with the legal advocacy they need in family court cases.

Child-Related Legal Services

In addition to working with parents to resolve disputes over the allocation of parental responsibility, parenting time schedules, and child support, we can assist with:

  • Paternity - While the husband of a child's mother is legally presumed to be a child's father in Illinois, unmarried parents may need to take steps to legally establish paternity. This will ensure that fathers can have ongoing relationships with their children, and it will allow children to receive the financial support they need.
  • Domestic Violence - If children have been exposed to domestic violence or domestic abuse, either as victims or observers, we can help parents understand their options for escaping an abusive situation and assist with obtaining an order of protection that will protect them and their children from an abuser.
  • DCFS Investigations - Reports of child abuse or child endangerment may trigger an investigation by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). We work with parents in DCFS investigations, helping them understand their rights and working to achieve a positive result with minimal disruptions to their family life and their relationships with their children.
  • International Child Abductions - When a parent attempts to relocate their child to another country without the other parent's permission, it is essential to work with an attorney who understands international laws and treaties. We can help you resolve international child custody issues, ensuring that parents' and children's rights are protected and working to have children promptly returned to the country where they habitually resided.
  • Guardianship - If a child's parents die or are unable to care for their children due to illness, disability, or absence, other family members may step in to provide care. In these cases, we can assist with establishing legal guardianship of children, providing both children and their guardians with the legal protections that will ensure that the children's needs are met.
  • Grandparents' Rights - The parents of divorcing spouses may worry that their relationship with their grandchildren will be negatively affected. We work with grandparents to establish visitation rights, allowing them to maintain an ongoing relationship with their grandchildren.
