A: The answer to your question "will I lose custody" depends on several factors. While your health and ability to care for your child is certainly one of those factors, based on what you have indicated in your question, it alone is not likely to be dispositive of the issue . My firm offers a free 30-minute consultation. Please contact my office at (630) 407-1200, and I would be happy to go over the particular facts and circumstances of your case in detail.

A: You have not provided enough facts to allow for a definitive answer, but there isn't anything you have said that would indicate you would not receive at least 50% of the parenting time. Your depiction of your health condition does not hurt your chances of being the residential parent. The fact that you have been the primary caretaker of the child will weigh heavily in your favor.

A: You will not lose your children based upon your health as stated in this question. A change in custody does not happen without a significant change in circumstances. I judge can consider everything reasonable but based upon what you have stated in this question it is highly unlikely that you will lose your children.
