Assertively Protecting Your Parental Rights

Reaching a mutually acceptable agreement on custody and visitation can be a challenge, but it is almost always better to keep these decisions within the family's control if possible.

I am family law attorney Monika Blacha. I help parents in Naperville and the surrounding areas determine where children will live, how children's time will be divided between parents, and how parents will make important decisions about their children's upbringing following a divorce.

Creating A Workable Parenting Plan

Whether your goal is sole physical custody of your kids, shared/joint custody, or substantial visitation time as a noncustodial parent, I will help you determine the best approach and strategy for establishing a workable child custody arrangement. As your lawyer, my focus will be on helping you make sound decisions and protect the best interests of your children.

Resolving a child custody dispute through litigation can carry a very high emotional and financial cost. The two sides tend to dig into their positions, making it harder to find a compromise that meets the needs of both parents and the children.

As both a family law mediator and a skilled advocate for Illinois mothers and fathers, I am adept at helping parents prioritize children's best interests and find common ground. I believe that parents are more likely to abide by a child custody agreement if they have a role in creating it. However, if litigation is necessary to protect your children, I have the experience to take your case to court.

In addition to crafting a comprehensive parenting plan, I handle issues such as child support and post-decree modifications.
