Gateville Law Firm



Emergency Modifications of Child Custody and Parenting Time Attorneys

Motions to Modify Child Custody and Parenting Time is a significant legal motion that has significant parenting opportunities or distress.  Sean Robertson and Gateville Law Firm have significant experience addressing emergency motions for Change in Circumstances.  Generally, in Illinois, a child custody final decree cannot be overturned unless a parent establishes that the child’s present environment may seriously endanger the child’s physical, mental, moral or emotional health.  This situation may occur when one parent has a DCFS investigation that has taken the child or children out of the home.

Change of Child Custody Attorneys

Sean Robertson and Gateville Law Firm concentrate in the areas of divorce, family law, and modification of child custody orders allocating parental responsibilities.  Illinois law favors a stable environment for a child.  Thus, a change of child custody petition is a difficult petition to win.  The law changed significantly in 2016 and the standard to provide for a child modification proceeding changed from clear to convincing evidence to a preponderance of the evidence.  The preponderance of the evidence standard is a much easier standard to meet than the clear and convincing standard.
