Illinois Child Custody Attorneys
Visitation Rights in DuPage County & Kane County
In situations where two parents are not together, arrangements for child custody and/or visitation must be made. While some parents can work out these arrangements on their own amicably, these issues are often hotly contested in many cases. At the Abear Law Offices, we aggressively protect the rights of our clients and the interests of the children involved. The well-being of the children is always our top priority.

Types of Child Custody and Visitation Cases
Issues of child custody and visitation occur in many areas of family law. Our firm is skilled in handling these arrangements in all matters including:
- Divorce proceedings
- Child support disputes
- Paternity cases
- Post decree modifications
- Adoption cases
- Domestic partnerships
- Fathers’ rights cases
- Grandparents’ rights cases
Child custody and visitation cases can vary greatly from one another. As such, each case should be considered individually. Attorney Anthony Abear does not apply one-size-fits-all logic to his cases. Rather, he carefully works with his clients to determine the best solution for all involved.
Managing Child Custody and Visitation Arrangements
The circumstances in a family can change dramatically over time. For example, as children get older and start to impose their own will, modifications to custody and visitation are often necessary. At our firm we handle both initial determinations of custody as well as ongoing post decree modifications. Where warranted, such as in circumstances of abuse and domestic violence, we also handle child custody removals.
