Do Mothers Always Get Residential or Primary Allocation of Parental Responsibility?
DuPage County Attorneys Explain Child Custody and Parenting Time for Divorcing Parents
Mothers receiving more parenting time with their children certainly does not always happen. However, it does occur in many cases but is not a guarantee by any means. At Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC, we can help find what allocation of parental responsibilities (formerly known as child custody) arrangement best suits your family.
Oftentimes, in these types of cases, we see that both members of the dissolving marriage come to an agreement. Usually, one of the parties has more parenting time with the children than the other. In some cases decided by the court, a majority or significant amount of parenting time can be awarded to the parent who was the primary caregiver of the children during the course of the marriage. Over the years, that has more so been the mother, but that is entirely on a case-by-case basis.
We have also seen plenty of cases where it was deemed more appropriate for the father to have more parenting time. Another option is that both parents are awarded nearly equal time for parenting with their children. All options have been handled by the team at MKFM Law, and we want to make sure we fight for whatever scenario is not only best for you, but for your child to be given the adequate care they deserve.
