Child Custody Nightmare: Child removed from Illinois

If you child has been wrongfully removed from Illinois, then you are in what I call a “child custody nightmare.” As an Illinois divorce lawyer, I’d say that most likely your child’s other parent is fleeing to another state to try to deprive you of the proper relationship with your child. There’s a good change you’re going to be dealing with the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (the “UCCJEA”). If so, you need a lawyer with considerable expertise in the UCCJEA.
