Child Custody Vs. Visitation
Child custody (now referred to as “allocation of parental responsibilities” in Illinois) dictates who can make decisions regarding the child’s upbringing. This can include what religion your children follow, what extracurricular activities they are involved in, what school they go to, health care decisions and more. Either one parent will make these decisions or both will have to work together.
Visitation (now referred to as “parenting time” in Illinois) determines the time each parent spends with a child.
When circumstances change (such as when a parent relocates), these terms can be modified by the courts.
