An increasing number of couples are having children without entering into marriage. In these cases, the Court may need to declare the father to be the biological father of the child in order for the father to be granted parental rights and responsibilities regarding the child.
Under Illinois Law, the same standards regarding custody/allocation of parental responsibilities and child support which are applied to divorcing couples are applied to unmarried parents. At Collins Family Law, our family law attorneys are well versed in handling paternity/parentage, child support and custody matters in a manner which serves the best interest of our clients and most importantly, their children.
