Divorce is a complicated process, and it can be an emotionally difficult time as well. One of the hardest things may be the involuntary separation from your children. If your former spouse filed for divorce, he or she may have received temporary custody during divorce proceedings. That often means you only see your children during evening and weekend visits, while also being expected to pay child support. In Illinois, the laws were changed in 2016 to include different language. Custody is now referred to as parental responsibility allocation or decision making power, while child support is now duty of support.
