New Illinois Child Custody Term
In Illinois, what used to be refered to as "child custody" is now referred to as "allocation of parent responsibilities." In Illinois the court may "allocate" to each parent and allow for both parents to make important decisions in the child's life. This will allow for both individuals that are involved in the decision making for the child to have mutual input, even if both of the parties do not collaborate well. These areas that include the important decision making for the child are: health, education, religion, and extracurricular activities.
