Friend of The Court Can Help During Your Divorce or Custody Case

The Family Division of the Circuit Court was created by Public Act 388 in 1996.  On January 1, 1998, the Friend of the Court became a unit in the Family Division of the Circuit Court.  The Friend of the Court provides services to parties with minor children involving divorce, family support, interstate and paternity cases.  Friend of the Court is responsible for investigating and making recommendations in regards to child custodysupport and parenting time (when ordered by the judge) in contested cases.

  • Secures financial information for support recommendations

  • Strives to settle disputes without Court intervention
  • Schedules cases for Courts
  • Holds referee hearings and mediation sessions
  • Finds absent parents
