New Changes to Illinois Divorce Law - Parenting Plans

Yet another revision to the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act taking effect on January 1, 2016 is related to custody and visitation.  Starting in 2016, within 120 days of the service or filing of a petition for allocation of parental responsibilities, both parents have to either file a joint proposed parenting plan or, if they are unable to agree, then each parent has to file their own plan with the court.  The 120 days to file the parenting plan can be extended by the Court if good cause is shown and accepted by the Court.
